Physical Ed. 
Unit Slated 

The Executive Committee of 
the Board of Regents have ap- 
proved the design and construc- 
tion of a college riding stable and 
paddock to be located on a four- 
acre site on the west campus 
below the cliffs. Tlie paddock will 
occupy two acres and be used 
for instruction in horsemanship 
and for exhibition. Negotiations 
are under way for a transfer to 
the college riding stable, an in- 
structor and a string of eighteen 
riding horses. 

"Tlie rolloge is building in the 
iradiiions iiiheritea by havuig 
come to the Conejo." said Dr. 
Orville Dahl. He added. "Tlie 
Conejo has been cattle country, 
providing the finest potential 
ti-ails in this part of the south- 
land." Riding tiaits will be de- 
signed into the north and west 
campus. The students will be in- 
structed as how to ride both Eng- 
lish and western style, as well as 
in the care of horses. The stables 
are now being designed by the 
college draftsmen and should be 
completed by early Februai-y. 

New Dorms 
Are Planned

Board of Regents. These dorms- 
Gamma and Delta - will contain

found in Alpha and Beta halls. 
The new dorm unit will house an 
additional 200 .students. The loca- 
tion for the new buildings is now

and Mr. Irwin Johnson, The ar- 
chitectural consultant is Mr. Jef- 
ferson Elmendorf. 

of Christ, the Church is assured 
of the responsibility of the college 
to integrate all knowledge 
through the reality of God in the 
lives of individuals. Dedicated to 
truth, the academic world is as- 
sured of the repsonsibility of the 
college to the pursuit of all truth 
— truth about the Creator as well 
as the Creator's creation. Dedica- 
tion to freedom, students are as- 
sured of an environment which 
will encourage creative thought 
and study."

friends are expected to be pres- 
ent at the dedication services 
which will include the first pub- 
lic performance of the CLC choirs

faculty in full academic attire 
will add a note of definite for- 
mality to tlie service.

WCA Commission 
Visits CLC 

Dahl Welcomes 
Student - pioneers 

Welcome student-pioneers to 
your college home. I greet you 
as colleagues in the higher learn- 

I welcome you as pioneers who 
have responded to your inner-cell 
to help found a Christ-centered 
institution of higher education. I 
commend to you the extraordi- 
nary experience of helping give 
birth to a liberal arts college. I 
commit to you the unusual re- 
sponsibility of nurtui-ing this in- 
fant to an early maturity. 

I greet you as colleagues who. 
together with the faculty, must 
join hands in laying CLC's first 
academic foundations; who must 
work together to breath life into 
CLC's dormant objectives; who 
must act as shuttles threading 
their ways across tender dreams 
in order to give color and mean- 
ing to this educational design. 

CLC welcomes you, Pioneers, 
to the eternal challenge of its 
motto. "Love of Christ, Tiuth, 
and fVeedom." 

A one-day prelimin.'uy \isii was 
paid to California Lutheran Col- 
lege by Dr. Franklin P. Rolfe 
and Dr. Mitchell P. Briggs of 
the Commission on Membership 
and Standards in the Western 
College Association on September 
27. They talked for over two 
hours with Dr. Or\'ille Dahl, 
toured the present academic 
campus and examined the class- 
rooms, laboratories, dormitories, 
and other facilities now in use 
and held a short conference with 
President Dahl, Dean of the«Col- 
lege, Elwin D. Farwell, and the 
Dean of Students, Dr. Robert 

The purpose of this \isit was 
to determine whether California 
Lutheran College should be ap- 
proved for a full-scale evaluation 
by the Western College Associa- 
tion in January. The following is 
a copy of their report to the 
Commission on Membership and 

"Califoi-nia Lutheran College is 
unique among the many Luther- 
an Colleges in the United States 
in that it has been established 
through the joint sponsorahip of 
the five southwestern regional 

districts of the participating 
church bodies; (1) American Lu- 
theran Church, California Dis- 
trict; (2» Augustana Lutheran 
Church. California Conference; 
{3i Evangelical Lutheran Church. 
California District; (4) United 
Evangelical Lutheran Cliurch, 
Pacific District; and (5) United 
Lutheran Church in America, the 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of 
the Pacific Southwest. . . 

The College has approximately 
250 acres in the rapidly develop- 
ing area of Thousand Oaks. With 
the exception of the student and 
faculty housing, most of the 
buildings now in use are the re- 
constructed ranch buildings 
which were on the site. However, 
they have been so tlioroughly re- 
constructed that they will remain 
a permanent part of the complet- 
ed campus. The plans are drawn, 
money has been provided, and in 
some instances, the contracts 
have been let for extensive build- 
ing on the larger campus. . . 

But it is obvious that as much 
thought and care and sound aca- 
demic judgment has gone into the 
planning of the academic pro- 
gram as has characterized the 


Jefferson Elmendorf. Centrum 
architect, has been commissioned 
by President Orville Dahl to de- 
sign the physical education plant 
which will be the first unit on 
the north campus. The estimated 
construction cost is $700,000. The 
completion of the athletic fields 
is expected by July with the 
physical education complex ready 
by late September. 

planning of the physical plant. 
The initial enrollment has been 
limited to 230 freshmen. 63 soph- 
omores, and seven special stu- 
dents. It is expected that a junior 
year will be added in the fall of 
1962. and the senior year in 1%3, 
Only lower division courses, 
therefore, are being offered this 
fall, but the catalog outlines the 
projected sequence through the 
upper division. In our opinion 
President Dalil and his staff have 
resolved the age-old problem of 
providing a sound liberal educa- 
tion for all students regardless of 
their vocational and professional 
objectives in a unique and rea- 
sonable way. 

On the basis of our brief con- 
tact with the faculty and an ex- 
amination of their training and 
experience it would appear that 
great care has been employed in 
screening the many candidates 
for teaching positions. . . The li- 
brai*y, which has been in process 
of development for two years, 
is adequately housed and staffed. 
In short, we question whether 
any private collegiate institution 
in California has opened its doors 
to students under more favorable 
conditions and circumstances. 

We recommend, therefore, that 
California Lutheran College be 
approved for a full-scale evalua- 
tion under the provisions of the 
recently approved plan for "pre- 
liminai-y accreditation." and that 
the visit be calendared at such 
a time as the College considere 
practicable and advantageous." 

Dr. Dahl is positive that with 
the quality of the students and 
the work they produce, CLC will 
pass the inspection of the West- 
ern College Association scheduled 
for sometime in January.

In the months to come you 

will see this column inli-oduced 

in many different ways. I will 
be writing on many issues fany- 
thing that comes to mindi, some 
humorous and some extremely 
serious. Today it happens that 
I'm in a serious mood, so put on 
your thinking caps (get your 
brain in gear) troops and we'll 
sally forth into the realm of edu- 

In the past few weeks, all of 
us have heard how great CLC 
WILL be in the futui-e. If we've 
heai-d it once, we've heard it 
fifty times. Well, I think it's a 
"bunch of baloney." We're all 
here now. not ten years in the 
future. I think we are capable 
of taking that future label and 
bring it right down to the school 
year of 1961-62. In short. let's 
make the present that future 
we've heard so much about. 

Sounds great huh? Well, there 

happens to be one little hitch. 
It is going to take a tremendous 
amount of effort on the part of 
each of us. Granted, we do not 
have the physical plant we will 
have in the future, but that 
shouldn't stop us from develop- 
ing a great college student wise. 
We all have the potential; the 
real question is, what are we 
doing with it. 

Some of you are going to sit 
back and say. "This guy sounds 
like some kind of a nut. What 
can I, as a person, do? Most of 
us have only been out of high 
school four months. What's he 
want, a miracle?" 

I suppose you could call it a 
miracle. What can one person do 
to help? The first thing each of 
us can do is behave like a ma- 
turing young Christian. Once this 
is done, we can start putting up 
tiie frame to our house of educa-

More Jobs 

Student employment is one of 
the outstanding projects at CLC. 
As of now there are a total of 
91 employed on campus and . 
according to Dean Hage, more 
jobs will be available in the 
near future. Although most of 
the jobs are filled, the fortii- 
coming infirmary and post of- 
fice will offer more. 

Other jobs on campus are caf- 
eteria workers, ground and main- 
tenance helpers, student counsel- 
ors, lab assistants, life guards. 
bookstore clerks, library assist- 
ants, switchboard operators, 
laundry assistants and bus driv-

are jobs for men. with more in 
the future for women. 

spring Mr. Karlstrom visited 
over eighty high schools from 
Sacramento to ban Diego talking 
with students and counselors 
about CLC. He also attended the 
United Lutheran Church's Na- 
tional Youth Convention in Cham- 
paign. Illinois, where he met 
many people from some of the 
older colleges in the country. The 
response he received, despite the 
fact that he had nothing but 
dreams and promises to offer, 
was very enthusiastic. 

Mr. Karlstrom is currently 
working on the Fellow's Program, 
which has played a major part 
in the development of the col- 
lege. To date there are four hun- 
dred Fellow's families pledging a 
total of S^SO.OOO. It is anticipated 
that eventually there will be one 
thousand Fellow's families pledg- 
ing over $1,000,000. While work-

Alpha Hall 
Panicked by 
Fire Call 

Very early Monday morning, 
Alpha Hall almost experienced a 
disaster! It was about 1:20 in 
the morning when I discovered, 
by eavesdropping, tliat one of the 
Alpha Mailites. upon hearing the 
shouts of Fire! Fire!; jumped 
out of bed in the middle of a 
deep sleep, gi'abbed her pillow, 
took aim at the fire extinguishing 
mechanism, and began her wind- 
up. Half-way through, she rea- 
lized the fire was not in the 
dorm. Naturally, the girl did not 
realize that the sprinklers go off 
automatically. Had she knocked 
off the mechanism the 120 pound 
water pressure would have blown 
the walls off of the room. But, 
after all, we at CLC are pioneers 
so a missing wall shouldn't affect 
us too very much; just think of 
the fun we would have had surf- 
ing on our mattresses down 
through Kramer Court. 

Chapel Committee 
To Plan Assemblies 

The chapel committee has been 
organized to work in co-ordination 
with the corresponding faculty 
committee to plan chapel and 
student assembly hours. They 
also ser\'e the students and for- 
mulate their ideas into actual 

Their present additional activi- 
ties consist of looking into the 
possibility of calling a campus 
pastor, planning a Religion Week 
for the second semester, and in 
general, seeking out the wishes 
of the students so that the pro- 
grams will be both interesting 
and beneficial to campus lite. 

The most important far-reach- 
ing task is investigating the pros 
and cons of a student congrega- 
tion and applying them to the 
particular circumstances which 

the students are in. This is of 
vital concern to both the present 
and future student bodies. 

The committee welcomes any 
and all ideas that the students 
have concerning their spiritual 
life on campus, chapel, and stu- 
dent assembly hours, In this 
unique situation, these services 
and presentations are going to 
be axactly what the students 
r.iake them. 

Students Come 
From Everywhere 

Attending C.L.C. are 301 stu- 
dents of which 175 are women 
and 126 are men. The freshman 
class of 229 has 132 women and 
97 men. Of the 63 sophomores, 
there are 37 women and 26 men. 

Among the 278 students living 
on campus are Caryl Hunt and 
Nels Olsen who are freshmen, 
and far away from home. Carj'l's 
giandfather. a Lutheran minis- 
ter, told her that tliere was go- 
ing to be a Lutheran college in 
Califoi-nia in the future. She read 
more about C.L.C. in a Luther 
League magazine a year ago. Her 
parents drove her to C.L.C. from 
Williston, North Dakota, and it 
was e.\actly as she had pictured 
it, so pretty and modern. "Every- 
body's really friendly and they're 
more casual. You can wear any- 
thing you want. In North Dakota 
we wear sweaters and skirts 
fiom the later part of September 
until alter Easter, and sometimes 
beyond that if it snows. I came 

The Roving 

students who go home for the 
week-end may find themselves 
with quite a headache upon their 
return. Roommates have been 
packing absentees' rooms from 
floor to ceiling with newspapers. 

The girls who put vaseline on 
Alpha Hall's classroom door- 
knobs got a second laugh when 
they found a sign above one of 
their masterpieces. It read: "One 
good turn desei'ves another." 

With the opening of California 
Lutheran College many problems 
have emerged which in an older 
school would be taken care of 
by traditions and set schedules. 
One of these problems concerns 
the lack of activities on our cam- 
pus. This is the first of two ar- 
ticles devoted to the question 
"What activities would you like 
to see on the CLC campus this

reason, but because it's a Luther-

wear them down. They like the

New Church 
Serves CLC 

A building which has become 
a very important part of CLC is 
that of Holy Trinity Lutheran 
Church. This Augustana congre- 
gation has just over a hundred 
confirmed members after little 
more than a year of existence. 

Their building progi-am is mov- 
ing right along and the present 
unit will be dedicated on October 
15 witli final completion expected 
by the end of the month. This 
unit contains a sanctuary with 
seating capacity of 275, and a 
combination educational and fel- 
lowship unit. 

I miss the lakes. This is a real 
good college, The roommates are 
good, and they're really funny. 
We're real good friends and don't 
want to be separated, but the 
college is thinking of making a

coming in, making more in their

Tests of balance and endurance 
are the first projects of the phys- 
ical education department. A ser- 
ies of balance tests were given 
to all of the P.E. classes on Wed- 
nesday. October 18. These tests 
were given to ascertain the agili- 
ty and the sense of balance that 
a student has at the beginning of 
the school year. The same tests

The big talk around the Cam-

basketball team. Just what are 
we going to have representing us 
in our first intercollegiate com- 
petition here at CLC? May I start 
by saying we won't have aiiy 
dummies out on that oak floor. 
In watching the boys practice, 
one can easily see that CLC 
ought to go a long way in this 
their first year. There is some 
real good material playing that 
round ball game this first season. 
There is one way to insure the 
team of real success and that is 
to turn out for the games and 
yell your heads off.

"To these great principles and 
precepts, we now dedicate Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College" rang 
Ihrough the crisp air on Sunday, 
October 29, to thrill the hearts of 
the approximated ^000 people at- 
tending this momentous occasion. 

Tlie entire service surrounding 
this milestone in the history of 
California Lutheran Colleg re- 
ceived many favorable comments. 
The processional itself was three- 
fold. It included an academic pro- 
cessional, a clergical proces- 
sional forty strong, and the Con- 
vocators. which included the 
Board of Regents. 

Dean Farwell has received 
many compliments on the selec- 
tions rendered by the choir and

tributions have been consideied

The ceremony hardly seemed 

full and com|}|ete without Dr. 
Dahl. the President of the Col- 
lege. To partially compensate for 
this loss, Dr. Dahl spoke and 
listened to the audience through 
a telephone connection. The most 
cheering and welcome news of 
all is that his battle with illness 
will soon be over. 

Greetings were brought to the 
College by Dr. J.C.K. Preus. Dr.

Our church to become acquaint- 
ed with in this issue is Ascension 
Lutheran Church of Thousand 
Oaks, This congregation held its 
first worship service on May 16, 
19J8 in a rented store building 
with 30 present. Pastor Waiter 
Gravrock- of Oxnard ronducled 
the worship. Five faithful and 
dedicated families organized the 
church and saw it through the 
early years. A church and par- 
sonage were built with ail volun- 
teer labor at Conejo School Road 
site. These liuildings were sold 

and Rev. Milus W. Bonkor (UL- 
CA) is secretary of the Convo- 
cators, which is an incorporated 
body of eighty members. Tliey

units who own, control, and op-

bers of the Regents. The Convo- 
cators, who meet annually in Oc- 
tober, turn over the responsibility 
of management and administra- 
tion (0 the Regents, the board of 
directors. This board was really 
set up in 19r)7 by the California 
Lutheran Educational Foundation, 
though many had been working 
on it a good ten years before.

cussed college business and ap- 
proved the budget.

Ascension Lutheran C li u r c h

to provide a program of interest 
and challenge to everyone of its 
families and to reach others in 
the community with the strength- 
ening and life giving power of 
the Word of ,Tesus Christ. 

The students and staff of C.L.C. 
are genuinely welcome to partici- 
pate and "be at home" in the 
life and worship at Ascension.

might never have been. 

The message of the afternoon 
was given by Dr. S.C. Eastvold. 
the President of Pacific Lutheran 
University in Parkland, Washing- 
ton. The following are e.\erpts 
from his message entitled "The 
Pilgrimage of Learning", ".^nd 
now we make bold to predict to- 
day that California Lutheran Col- 
lege will be one of the greatest 
Christian Colleges in America" 
. . . "If this nation of ours shall 
survive, it will be because of 
institutions such as this, with 
such a Christian faculty and li- 
brary at its center. If our gov- 
ernment is to have a good and 
permanent administration, it 
must be ruled by a citizenry 
made up of Chri.stian-minded peo- 
ple" . . . "If Christian colleges 
and the truth they represent are 
gone, ignorance, and violence will 
reign while there will be broken 
mills, closed factories, ruined in- 
dustries, and bursting bombs will 
shriek the awful end of civiliza- 
tion and the race. God save us 
from that and give us wise, un- 
selfish, and understanding hearts 
before it is too late". 

The new soptioniore class 
Judy Westberg. Secrdary; Don 
Vice-president; and Marcin Krc 

officers are from tcit to right: 
Meyer. President; Jack hnisely, 
Icshmer, Treasurer. 

Meyer and Meyer Win 

Don Meyer was elected presi- 
dent; Jack Knisiey. vice presi- 
dent: Judy Westberg, secretary; 
and Marcia Kretzschmar, trea- 
surer in the recent sophomore 
class elections. Don, who lives in 
Van Nuys, Is CLC's first sopho- 
more class president. Concerning 
the duties of his office, Don said 
that he hoped to get the sopho- 
more class off on the right foot 
so that things would be easier 
next year, being that CLC is just 
starting to gi'ow. 

As the Echo goes to press, 
CLC's freshman class is in the 
midst of its officer election pro- 
cess. Paul Meyer has been chosen 
as president and Brian Spafford 
as treasurer. Run-offs will be held 
between John Hamme and Grant 
Holly for vice president and be- 
tween Betsy Ross and Marilee 
Alne for secretary. 

It is no mere coincidence that 
CLC's class presidents have the 
same name — Don Meyer and 
Paul Meyer are brothers! 

The Tyranny Of Dating 

If has been brought to the at- 
tention of the staff by many of 
the students that the dating pro- 
cpduies of today aro quite differ- 
ent from those of past decades, 
and so, with this in mind, we, 
the Echo staff, have decided to 
run a series of articles called — 
The Tyi'anny of Dating. 

In this series of articles, the 

opinions, suggestions, and ideas 
of students, faculty, administra- 
tion &nd various pastors in the 
community will be polled and 
evaluated. In short, this wiil be 
a shortened Gilbert Research col- 
umn. We hope to come up with 
ideas and opinions which will 
"Shock" some of you. As for the 
rest, well. 

Prophet Company Caters 

The students at California Lu- 
theran College should feel very 
honored to have become one of 
the many institutions served by 
our caterers, the Prophet Com- 

Founded nearly 30 years ago 
as the Fred B, Prophet Com- 
pany, the Prophet Company now 
has branches in 43 states with 
their home office in the Fisher 
Building in Detroit, Michigan. 
The president of the Prophet 
Company is Herny A. Montague 
who is an officer of the National 
Restaurant Association. 

The Prophet Company oper- 
ates cafeterias and restaurants 
in industrial plants, colleges, de- 
partment stores, hospitals, office 
buildings, summer camps, and 
two airports. Also part of the 
Prophet Company is the inter- 
nationally famous Monte's Res- 
taurant chain. Locally, The Pro- 
phet Company has branches at 
the Broadway Valley. Anaheim, 
Oenshaw and downtown Los 
Angeles, the Van Nuys Chevro- 
let assembly plant, San Gabriel 
Hospital and the Burbank Inter- 
national Airport. Trinity Lutheran 
Hospital in Minot, Wisconsin al- 
so recently contracted The Pro- 
phet Company. 

One might ask why The Pro- 
phet Company was chosen as 
caterers for CLC. Tlic most im- 
portant reason is inevitably the 
many good references and rec- 
ommendations CLC received from 
the example they set at theii' 
other locations. 

The consumption of food in a 
weeks time amounts to quite a

All the food used is of highest 
quality. Except for the vegetables, 
most produce comes from Los 
Angeles, fi-esh vegetables are 
purchased from the Green Farms 
Produce Co. of Oxnard. Young's 
Market Co. provides us our meat. 
A little more expensive their 
meats are round to be consis- 
tandy of excellent quahty. S. E. 
Rycoff provides staples sucli as 
canned goods. The Prosser Bak- 
ing Co. furnishes breads and rolls, 
and the Bowie Pie Co. makes our 
coffee cakes and pies. 

The cafeteria is staffed by 25 
full-time employees and 19 part- 
lime student employees. Mr. Ver- 
non Davenport is the manager; 
Ml'. Joe Thompson is the assis- 
tant manager. Mr. Davenport is 
originally from Minnesota and 
has been in the west about 12 
years. Mr. Thompson graduated 
from Michigan State University 
last June. In charge of the kit- 
chen staff are a chef and three 

The product of this efficiently 
run organization is evident in 
the great variety of foods from 
day to day and the many choices 
at each meal. 

Choice of juices and fruits 
Entre {Such as french toast and 

sausage or scrambled eggs 

and ham 
Choice of hot or cold cereals 
Milk, cocoa or coffee 


As of November 11. a classified 
ad sei-vice will be made avail- 
able to aii California Lutheran 
College students by the Echo 
staff. Anyone wishing to sell, buy, 
borrow or in any other way use 
this facility is urged to see Kar- 
olyn Isaacson or Peggy McCTin- 
toch in Alpha 112 before Thurs- 
day noon, the 16 of November. 

Classified ads will cost ten 
cents per line with a minimum 
of three lines per ad. 


Choice of 5 salads 


Choice of 2 entrees 


Choice of 2 vegetables 

Choice of G desserts 

Bread, rolls and butter 

Milk, coffee or fruit punch 

With a large gain in student 
enrollment and anticipated com- 
pletion of the Centrum by next 
Septcmlier, there will be only 
minor revisions in the operation 
of the cafeteria. The staff will 
be enlarged to handle the increas- 
ed load, meaning more open- 
ings for student employment. 
The kitchen facilities in the Cen- 
lium will be somcwiiat larger. 
The piesent kitchen would he 
more than adequate for next 
semester except for serving and 
dining areas. The college res- 
taurant will most likely be an 
outgi'owth of the coffee shop. 

For a change of pace from the 
standard menus, we can look 
forward to an authentic Italiii* 
dinner this semester, complete 
down to checkered table cloths 
and candles. 1 'lanned for the 
spring semester are a luau and 
a barbeque. 

The cafeteria is very efficiently 
run; there is no waste in the 
kitchen. The only waste is that 
which is returned to the dish- 
room on the tray, especially 
butter. Each week the loss from 
butter alone is enough to make 
the difference twtween han^bur- 
ger and Swiss steak for one meal; 
On the whole, Mr. Thompson 
says that the students have been 
most cooperative, especially to- 
wai-ds the shortcomings of the 
first few days when much of 
the equipment was not yet con-

been reiterated by some conscien- 
lions men in all wallts of life. 
However, we are all well aware 
of the dangers and unavoidable 
death entailed in nuclear war- 
fare, and we are constantly re-

of the Communists in the race 
for space and power. More and

Writers Needed 
For Newspaper 

The newspaper staff is in need 
of some additional experienced 
students to do reporling, lay-out 
woik, and creative writing. A 
meeting is scheduled for Monday, 
November 13. at 9 p.m.. in the 
back-room of the cafeteria for 
all of those interested. Each re- 
porter will be expecled to attend 
two meetings a month to receive 
hjs or her assignments. 

Concert Series 
To Be Featured 

On Friday November 10, Am- 
paro Iturbi will give a piano con- 
cert for the students of CLC. 
Sponsored by the music depart- 
ment, the concert will be held 
in front of the science building. 
If the weather does not permit 
this, however, the concert will be 
given in Holy Trinity Lutheran 
Cliurch in the form of a theatre- 
in-the round. Miss Iturbi is well- 
known for her brilliant concerts 
given around the world. Although 
she plays Mozart, Haydn, and 
Liszt with feeling and brilliance. 
Miss Iturbi is especially noted for 
her interpr-etations of lesser- 
known Spanish composers. Miss 
Iturbi's performance is the first 
in a series of cultural programs 
which have been planned by the 
music department under the di- 
rection of Dr. Howard Halversen. 

New Arrivals 
At Bookstore 

Recent arrivals ai-e filling the 
shelves at CLC's bookstore. On 
the academic side, more text- 
books. Bibles, and music selec- 
tions are on the racks and a 
large array of paperbacks is also 
on display. New art supplies are 
now available as is wrapping pa- 
per and twine for packages. Sev- 
eral new innovations are the 
shelves of candy and cosmetics, 
both of which are so necessary 
to college life. Vitamins and oth- 
er medicines are here to keep 
the student in perfect health. The 
new stuffed animals, which make 
nice room decorations, line the 
shelf tops in the store. 

There is more yet to come ac- 
cording to Judy Atrops, student 
clerk. More variety in sweatshirt 
styles will bo forthcoming, and 
the paperback selection will be 
expanded with more novels and 
handbooks. Also, making its ap- 
pearance in the coming days will 
be college jewelry for students. 
Perhaps the most unique service 
to be offered, however, will be 
the gift selection. Operating main- 
ly for the Christmas season, this 
service will provide a way for 
CLC students to do their holiday 
shopping here on campus. From 
samples on display, the students 
will be able to select and order 
the gifts which they want. The 
bookstore personnel will pick up 
the articles at the distributor's, 
usually several times a week, and 
bring them to the bookstore 
where the students will be able 
to pick them up. This will be 
only one of the services which 
CLC's fine bookstore provides for 
tlie students. 

developed day by day. This 
brings rise lo the question: are 
wc, the members of the fi'ee 
world, going lo win this contest? 
This is no game of play-acting, 
for we are not puppets in a little 
theater, but we are live individ- 
uals seemingly bent on the de- 
struction of this God-made earth. 

At a time such as this, let us 
stop and reflect over the pages 
of history. In so doing, we dis- 
cover that whenever preparations 
for war were made, war evolved. 
Thus, we are following a path 
that leads only to inevitable suf- 
fering and eventual annihilation 
of the human race. 

It is time that we must realize 
the seriousness of our situation, 
and it is time that we look else- 
where for power and protection. 


Infectious Mononucleosis was 
prevalent on the CLC campus as 
two of Beta Hall's residents, 
Norm Knoll and Jim Anderson 
were stricken with the disease, 
and many others were suspected. 
Norm has been released from 
the infirmary but Jim is due to 
spend at least another three 
weeks in confinement. He 
shouldn't mind though, what with 
a TV. radio, plenty of visitors 
and two good-looking nurses to 
take care of him.

In the previous issue of the 
ECHO. I mentioned that (o bring 
the future greatness of CLC into 
the present wc must act like ma- 
turing young Christians. Maturity 
is a word that is hard to define. 
Webster says that it is a state 
or quality of being mature. On 
mature he says that is is a nat- 
ural process to completeness of 
growth and development. The 
goal of this column, therefore, is 
to further explain what is meant 
by maturing young Christians, 
particularly at CLC. 

Throughout life and especial- 
ly as we arc entering adult- 
hood, the young Cliristian will 
need to fall back on many 
"crutches". Because the basic 
ingredient of maturity is good 
judgement, maturity will be the 
crutch of greatest value through- 
out oui- lives. AH of us possess 

good judgement, but we don't 
use it. 

The theoretical gentlemen of 
Beta Hall have requested open 
hours and our retpiest is based 
on the fact that we think we are 
mature enough and that we have 
enough good judgement to han- 
dle ourselves in an adult man- 
ner. So what do we do to prove 
that we are mature enough to 
have open hours? We fill room.s 
full of newspapers, we hold 
haircutting parties, and wo have 
fights with shaving cream and 

Maturity is not something that 
is acquired over night nor is it 
acquired by sitting back and 
thinking about it. Instead you 
have to work at it. It's a "rough 
row to hoe", but it is as much 
ad service will be made avail- 
tion as the classroom. 

Student Music On the Way

Physical Education 
Continues Basic Tests 

Basic ability tests of endurance 
and balance have been the main 
emphasis in the physical educa- 
tion classes. AH students engag- 
ing in the physical education 
classes have taken the Harvard 
Step Test, the Brace Tests and 
tlie six basic ability tests. Many 
people have asked why we are 
taking these tests. In A Presi- 
dential Message to the Schools 
on the Physical Fitness of Youth. 
President Kennedy states that 
the strength, vigor, and the level 
of physical, mental, moral and 
spiritual fitness of every Ameri- 
can citizen, especially the youth, 
must be our constant concern. 
We are becoming flabby Ameri- 
cans. Three recommendations of 
the President are to evaluate, 
improve and revaluate the youth 
in physical education classes. As 
it states in The Physical Activity 
in Modern Living, text for all 
P.E. classes, "Adequate knowl- 
edge of self has long been recog- 
nized as essential for the main- 
tenance of a good state of pliysic- 
al and mental health." Miss 
Nena Amundson, Dr. Luther 
Schwich and Mr. John Kahnert 
are attempting to determine the 
individual level of physical fit- 
ness and to develope understand- 
ings, appreciations and skills in 
physical education activities. 

In answer to how the results 

or the tests Yook. Dr. SchWich ' 
states, "In the Harvard Step 
Test it was definatrly shown that 
those students who had engaged 
in the extensive conditioning pro- 
gram in cross-country and pre- 
season basketball had a higher 
score than those who did not, 
thus the conditioning program for 
those sports was a success." Also 
in reference to student progress 
he states. "During the course o£ 
the season the tests will be re- 
peated to determine how well the 
individual player is maintaining 
his physical fitness." 

High scores recorded in Mr. 
John Kahnert's classes are: soft- 
ball throw. Richard Stolee (260 
feet); standing broad jump. Ed- 
ward Reesei (8 feet 11 inches): 
six hundred yard run, Paul Kil- 
bert (1.25 min.); fifty yard dash. 
Paul Kilbert (5.9 sect; and pull- 
ups, Don Meyer (16). 

Upcoming activities for the 
physical education classes will in- 
clude basketball and volleyball 
which will round out the semes- 
ter. Basketball will first be en- 
gaged by the men until after 
Thanksgiving when the women 
will participate in the sport while 
the men will take volleyball. 
Concluding the semester will be 
the same series of tests fi-om 
which the student progress will 
be noted.

Team Ready 

For Games 

After hvo moiilhs of condition- 
ing; and general fundamentals of 
basketball. California Lutheran's 
first basketball team is setlling 
down to work on piays for the 
coming season. 

On September 18, the boys 
started training for the coming 
season. This training period was 
possible only because CLC had 
no football team this fall. Usually 
basketball take a back scat 
to football until the latter's sea- 
son is over. General conditioning 
consisted of exercises, lunning 
and weight training for the squad. 
All these phases were under the 
direction of Mr. John Kahnert. 
physical education instruclor. 

Both Mr. Kahnert and Dr. 
Schwich, head of the physical ed- 
ucation department, are strong 
believers in weight training for 
conditioning in any sport. Weights 
were used in sucli a way as to 
build up a person's arms and 
legs. This concentration on these 
two parts of the body improved 
the jumping and guarding tech- 
niques of the team. 

Now thai the team is able to 
practice in the Camarillo high 
school gym the main concentra- 
tion has switched to offensive and 
defensive patterns. Dr. Schwich 
stated, "Because of our lack in 
height, we will be running a lot 
this season. In our practices we 
have practiced our fast breaks 
at length." 

On Friday November 3, the 
team opened its practice session 
to the student body so they might 
have an idea of whal to expect. 
Tlie practice session on Friday, 
November 10. has been opened 
to all students who are Interested

CLC Gridders

You have probably wondered 
what that barking is when you 
pass by near Kramer Court on 
Tuesday and Thursday after- 
noons. No, it's not a dog, it's 
Jack Knisley "barking out" sig- 
nals for CLC's prospective foot- 
ball squad, now working out -for 
the season next fall. 

Basically running end sweeps, 
ti'ap plays, a few pass forma- 
tions, and off tackle plays, have 
been: Gary Berg, Bill Harrison. 
Ken Gulp, Karsten Lundrig, Nick 
Mallas. George Engdahl, Fritz

las, Tom Ecklund. Gary Folgner, 
Rudy Riekansrud, Grant Holly, 
Bill Smith and Jack "Bow wow" 

Starting out on October 10. the 
above have been under the able 
tutelage of Pastor James Kailas.

Athletic spirit has hit our stu- 
dent body in one big bang it 
seems lately. On November 21 
the school's basketball team 
takes to the oaks for its first 
game. Our cheerleaders have 
been chosen and our nickname 
is being decided. By the way. a 
big congratulations to Linda Mi- 
nah. Mary Lou iVIelick, Yvon 
Madson, Mike Cerda. Gary Alex- 
ander and Jim Schaff for being 
elected CLC's first cheerleaders. 
Lots of luck kids and let's really 
hear it this season! In speaking 
to students about the upcoming 
season, I don't think you will 
have any trouble in getting peo- 
ple to yell. 


About fifteen eager men have 
been continuing practice of the 
oblong game every Tuesday and 
T h u r s day afternoon. Although 
there is a lot to be desired in 
looking forward to next fall some 
of the boys ai-e really looking 
sharp. Jack Kniseley, converted 

quarterback, is improving every 
day in his new signal calling posi- 
tion. Ken Gulp looks strong at 
the center slot, and Bill Harrison 
is equally experienced at the 
tackle spot. We can look forward 
to some strong end runs from the 
backfield with material like end 
Nick Mallas doing the blocking 
on the right side. In talking with 
coach James Kailas he stated, 
"I have eleven men on the first 
team I wouldn't be afraid to 
send up _ against anyone." 0£ 
course as' I said before there is 
a lot to be desired in depth on 
the squad. 

The basketball team continues 
to look better every night. That 
is if Mr. Kahnert doesn't kill off 
the team in the PE sessions. Last 
week he had one PE class run 
the cross-country course (three 
miles I just for fun. As everyone 
knows the basketball team is re- 
quired to take PE.

Budget Approved by Regents 

The Student Activity fee is 
512.50 per semester or $25.00 for 
the academic year. For a total 
of 300 students the estimated in- 
come from this fee is $7,500.00 in 
1961-1962. To this expected in- 
come from the activity fee the 
Board of Regents has added oth- 
er funds for the purpose of assist- 
ing various student activities. 

The allocation of funds, subject 
to change, is as follows: 
Concert-Lecture Series $2,200.00 
Council on Religious 

Activities 1,200.00 

Student Government 300.00 

Student Social Activities 500.00

Forensics (travel, etc) 500.00 

Drama 700.00 

Music Organizations

The above figures do not in- 
clude approximately $15,000.00 
for the purchase of equipment 
necessary in the various student 

Expenditures in any of the 

above areas should be estimated 

by the departments and persons 

involved. Each of the depart- 
ments represented above will in 
turn construct budgets indicating 
the use of the funds over the 
period of the academic year from 
September 1961 to June 1962. The 
substantial addition of funds to 
the amounts provided by the stu- 
dents comes in the form of con- 
tributions from the Church bodies 
and congi'egations supporting 
Cahfornia Lutheran College. It 
is hoped that the foregoing distri- 
bution of funds indicates the sub- 
stantial support accorded to a 
wide variety of student activities 
at the college. All, of com-se.

Iturbi Lauded Ca^Pus Nurses Arrive 
Success by CL 

Sponsored by the Concert Lec- 
ture Series, which is supported 
by our Student Activity Fee, 
Amparo Iturbi appeared before 
a crowd of approximately two 
hundred students and faculty 
members on Friday evening, No- 
vember 10. 

Miss Iturbi captivated the au- 
dience with her brilliant interpre- 
tations of scores by Chopin. Men- 
delssohn, Liszt, Gershwin, Shos- 
takovich. Granados, deFalla, and 
Albeniz. As one faculty member 
commented. "Tiiere is no half 
way in craftsmanship for Miss 
Iturbi. She is a true artist." 

Faculty membeis and students 
who met Miss Iturbi said that it 
was a rai'e privilege and honor 
and that she is a most charming 
person; very warm, sincere, and 
understanding of people. When 
Miss Iturbi was told that she was 
giving the first concert for the 
school, she said, "I am the God- 
mother of California Lutheran 
College. I have been chosen to 
give the fii"st concert for the 
school." After the concert she 
said that she would consider it 
a privilege to be asked back to 
play for us. This way she can 
return as a "Godmother" to 
check up on her children, 
and Mrs. Powers. 

Future concerts include the 
West Coast Opera Company pre- 
senting Madam Butterfly on Sat- 
urday evening, March 10 and the 
Operatic Puppets doing scenes 
from Broadway shows on Satur- 
day evening. May 5. The fourth 
concert is still being planned. 

Miss Nancy Landdeck, who is 
originally from Wisconsin and 
Miss Marilyn Schneider, from 
Ohio, have left California Luther- 
an Hospital in Los Angeles, 
where they have been working 
for the last two years, to become 
CLC's campus nurses. Before 
coming to California, the two 
women trained for four years at 
Capital University in Columbus. 
Ohio, and received their Bache- 
lor of Science degrees. 

These nurses are in charge of 
handling students' needs and dis- 
pensing medication upon doctor's 
orders. They keep a pei-sonal file 

and health record of each student 
whether he has been in the in- 
firmary or not. Sen'ices offered 
range from checking heights and 
weights to actual confinement 
and personal care m the infirm- 

As for their leisure time. Miss 
Landdeck and Miss Schneider 
both enjoy sports and have been 
seen in such places as the tennis 
court, playing tennis, and in the 
boys' recreation room, playing 
ping pong. 

Next semester the two nurses 
are planning to take post-gradu- 
ate classes in order to ubtam 
their M.A. degrees.

policies of the college. Dr. Hal- 
vorsen has been a professional 
educator for twenty-four years 
and has been an active member 
of the church. 

Dr. Halvorsen is also executive 
secretary and chairman of the 
concert-lecture series. 

Mr. Karlstrom, who is Direc- 
tor of Public Relations and is 
also in charge of the Clef pro- 
gram, assists Dr. Halvorsen with 
admissions when he is out in the 
field and happens to be in the 
same location that Dr. Halvorsen 
would otherwise be in. 

A Lutheran Student Association 
has recently been established on 
the CLC campus. More than a 
month ago, a steering committee, 
consisting of Bob Atkinson, Steve 
Belgum, Merie Betz, Will Bow- 
ers, Diane Jordens. Jon Staf- 
sholt, and Dennis Weems. vol- 
unteered to organize an LSA. 
Under the guidance of these sev- 
en students and two capable ad- 
visors. Rev. Robert Lawson, who 
is serving as the LSA contact 
pastor, and Rev. Donald Oscar- 
son, this organization gained con- 
siderable strength. It has recent- 
ly written and accepted its con- 
stitution ,ind elected its officers. 
Its first officers are: Dennis 
Weems, president: Judy Schott. 
vice-president: Bob Atkinson, 
treasurer; Diane Jordens, secre- 
tary; and Cliff Olsen. program 

The purpose of the LSA is: to 
strengthen and sustain students 
in their faith through the use of

The Christmas play was written 
especially for the CLC drama de-

Thanksgiving is one day set 
aside esr'pcially to show our 
thankfulness to God. However, it 
is a day that calls for more than 
thankfulm^ss; it is a day that 
calls for thought fulness as well. 
That is, a day to think seriously 
about some of our actions. We, 
loday, are too ready to complain 
when something goes wrong; too 
ready to accept and not to give; 
loo ready to feel depressed when 
one of our cherished dreams or 
ideals is smashed before us. 

We should, as the popular song 
goes, "count our blessings, in- 
stead of sheep." That is to say, 
when things seem to be going 
all wrong and we are burdened 
with troubles, let us think of all 
the things that have gone right 

and the happiness we have had; 
as we are spoiled with luxurious 
gifts and comfort, let us think 
of these many blessings bestowed 
upon us, and let us share them 
with others who are less fortu- 
nate; when we have a dream and 
scheme for the future and it does 
not materialize, let us remember 
the many dreams we have had 
that did come true, the many at- 
tempts that did succeed, and let 
us disregard all defeats, no mat- 
ter how large. 

Let us think about all of these 
things mentioned, and let us give 
heartfelt thanks to our Father in 
Heaven, for we are a highly 
blessed people living in a richly 
blessed nation. Truly, we have 
much for which to be thankful.

Happy Talk 

With Schultzy 

I was walking by one of the 

rooms in Alpha Hall on my way 

to chapel. Suddenly, from around 
the corner. I heard a banging and 
screeching! I went to see what 
was happening and found one of 
Alpha's dorm officers frantically 
trying to open a door. I took a 
few more steps and saw two 
faces peering at me through the 
big front window. It was very 
evident thai these people were 
rather frightened. Somehow these 
people had locked the door earli- 
er in the morning and jammed 
the lock. They only found out 
about this after they were 
dressed and ready to leave for 
chapel. How would you feel if 
you got up early to make sure 
you could do your remaining 
work so you would be able to 
go to chapel only to be locked 
in your room? Evidentally the 
girls got out as I saw them 
shortly before lunch. This cer- 
tainly goes to show that a lock 
can not only keep you out but 
it can also keep you in. 

"What? Do you mean to tell 
me the dorms have bathtubs?" 
This was the reaction of a cer- 
tain student upon hearing that 
some of his fellow students were 
going to take baths. For most 
students who have not been lucky 
enough to go home since they ar- 
rived at CLC, a bathlub is an 
oversized sink you run water into 
and sit in for a while. Did you 
know that drain stoppers are a 
vei y popular item at near-by 
stores? Could it be? Yes. it must 
be! If any of you have been used 
to studying in the tub, here is 
what you can do. Buy a stopper. 
After you get it here, put it over 
the drain in the shower and turn 
the water on. Just be sure to 
check the shower nozzle first. 
This does avoid a large shock in 
case it is facing you when you 
turn the water on. After you do 
this you are ready for your bath. 
One warning to the wise, remem- 
ber you have to sit in the water. 
Do not do what one person did 
and cause a tnirlor flood by Ail- 
ing up the bottdm of the ^lio\^er 


Our job for the next three or 
four years is that of students. 
This is work just as any job out- 
side of college is work. The hours 
are long and the pay is not tan- 
gible. Being a full-lime student 
is our full-time job and. as such, 
we should take it seriously. Edu- 
cation is a "white collar" job. 
i I am not advocating that all 
the men should wear white shirts 
and ties, although I personally 
prefer it, but I do stress being 
neat and clean.) When a person 
is dressed in something neat and 
clean, that person is usually more 
inclined to be serious about his 
or her work. 

I have heard some of the girls 
say that they think it wotild he 
nice to wear high heels to class 
and then turn right around and 
say that they wouldn't wear them 
because it looks "out of place". 
It does not look out of place, and 
if you think that wearing high 
heels to class will make you per- 
sonally feel better and improve 
your scholastic attitude, wear 
them! People won't criticize you 
for it, in fact, the reverse is true. 
If you work for a large firm and 
have a position of any authority, 
you would feel out of place and 
probably lose your job, unless 
you are neatly dressed. The same 
holds true here at C.L.C. You 

may not hold a position of au- 
thority but you do hold a position 
of responsibility. 

Our work day is from break- 
fast through supper, and during 
this period, we should look our 
best, not only for personal satis- 
faction, but also because it 
makes a good impression upon 
visitors of our campus. It also 
makes the faculty happy in that 
they have more respect for the 
student who looks neat and clean 
than they do for the student who 
is sloppily dressed. The only ex- 
cuse for sloppy dress is imma- 
turity and lack of self-respect. 
When a person is dressed neat- 
ly, he or she looks like a more 
mature person and usually acts 
more mature. 

Thinking and acting as a ma- 
ture adult requires conscientious 
effort for those of us just enter- 
ing upon adulthood, and any 
ciTjtch we can use to help us 
along these lines is of value to 
us. Looking our best, as far as 
dress is concerned, is such a 
crutch. You can not become adult 
by sitting back and thinking 
about it (although it doesn't 
hurt), but you have to work at 
it. It's a rough row to boe but 
it is as much a part of your ven- 
ture in Christian higher educa- 
tion as the classroom.

In thumbing once again 
through the Yellow Pages, dis- 
covery was made of the Giaco- 
puzzi Dairy listed under "Milk 
& Milk Products" from a refer- 
ence under "Daii-y Products." 
One can, in one's free time stand 
on the fence and observe the 
cows switching their tails, chew- 
ing their cuds and producing that 
particular product which is so 
prevalent in this day. Also milk. 

Another activity which is par- 
ticularly Invigorating is a brisk 
stroll along the mall behind 
Thrifty's and Von's. One can. in 
perambulating along this delight- 
ful little breezeway, observe the 
various forms of other stupid 
nuts perambulating along the 
mail behind Thrifty's and Von's. 

Another sinfillating experience 
is making one's way toward the 
contemporary card display in 
Thrifty's to reap society's quin- 
tessince in literary exposition. 

This reporter is also elated to 
report that there is (ta da. ta da) 
a Post Office in T.O. where the 
more inquisitive or industrious 
student may go to gaze at want- 
ed posters. 

To absolutely conclude this lit- 
erary manifestation, this reporter 
suggests that you just go some- 
whei-e and hang around — there's 
no telling what phenomena will 
come along. Or you could study. 
Or join the Echo staff.

Dr. Elwin D. Farwell, named 
by the Regents last October, 1960 
as the first dean of California 
Lutheran College, took office 
Februaiy 1 as head of academic 

Dean Fanvell had been pastor 
of Salem Lutheran Church in An- 
drew, Iowa (or two years. Said 
Farwell, "We liked the communi- 
ty, especially since it was located 
in a fertile agricultural area and 

Dr. Farwell grew up on a gen- 
eral livestock farm In southern 
Michigan. His leadership with 4H 
club and rural youth gained na- 
tional recognition. 

During World War II, he 
served for three years in the 
Army's Pacific Theater, in which 
time re reached the rank of Cap- 

Bringing an unusual back- 
ground to CLC, Dean Farwell 
holds advanced degrees in three 
fields. Obtaining both a bache- 
lor's and master's degrees in 
animal husbandry from Michigan 
State University, he became a 
professor in the department for 
eight years. 

In 1952, Farwell was sent to 
South America as a Point Four 
consultant to initiate a program 
of technical assistance in agri- 
culture and in the selection and 
training of students from Colum- 
bia attending MSU. He is the 
author of several agricultural 
publications also. This back- 
ground in animal husbandry is 
used somewhat in his teaching 
a course in genetics at CLC. 

Dean Farwell reflected. "Even 
though I was completely satis- 
fied with my teaching at MSU 
for several years, I believed that 
I must serve God in a greater 
capacity. I finally decided to go 
into full-lime service in the 
church." Dr. Fanvell enrolled 
in Pacific Lutheran Theological 
Seminary at Berkeley in 1955. 

From 1956 to 1959. Farwell 
served as a research analysis of 
the Center for the Study of High- 
er Education at the University 
of California at Berkeley, where 
he earned his doctorate in High- 
er Education. 

In theology, he earned his 
bachelor of divinity degree in 
1959. Before being called to a 
church, Dr. Farwell was elected 
by the American Lutheran 
Church to the first board of gov- 
ernors of the California Lutheran 
Educational Foundation. The five 
representatives from each of five 
Lutheran boides were the board 
responsible for selecting the pres- 
ent site and for establishing CLC. 

Following his junior year at 
Michigan State, Farwell married 
Helen Hill, a graduate of Michael 
Reese School of Nursing in Chi- 
cago. The Farwells have four 
children: Don 16. Kay 14, James 
9, and Judy 3. They arrived last 
January and took residence in 
Kramer Court shortly thereafter. 
Dean Farwell has said that "the 
opportunity to share in the estab- 
lishment of a Christian liberal 
arts college is a tremendous 
challenge. The opportunity to 
work with college students was 
the deciding factor in giving 
up a ministry to a communi- 
ty." Dean Farwell is a dedi- 
cated man with a true Christian 
outlook of "Whether or not we 
are to win the world struggle 
with Communism will ultimately 
depend upon the witness our na- 
tion gives to its Christian heri- 
tage. At CLC we share in this 
responsibility for developing in- 
tellectual leadership, coupled 
with a mature Christian faith. 
There is no greater challenge!"

Poll. Sci. Club Eyes Future 

A Political Science Club was 
organized on the CLC campus 
November 1. 1961, with Dr. Roy 
V. Peel as its sponsor. The gi'oup 
has since held three meetings 

consisting of open group discus- 
sion on such topics as the Cuban 
situation and possible admittance 
of Communist China into the 
United Nations. The club has also 
elected as its temporary officers 
John Wold, president, and Sue 
Smith, secretary. 

According to President Wold 
some of the goals of the Political 
Science Club are: "to provide 
a greater political awareness on 
the campus, to act as a forum 
for political discussion, and to ob- 
tain speakers who will add to 
the political knowledge of the 
CLC student body". 

Sei-ving with the officers on the 
Speakers Committee are: Steve 

Belgum , Gary Cockrell , Laurie 
Langhofer. John McCune. and 
Paul Meyer. This committee 
hopes to soon be able to an- 
nounce the engagement of lec- 
turers and political candidates 
who will address the student 

The club is fortunate in having 
Professor Peel as its sponsor. 
Dr. Peel's varied experiences 
and close association with po- 
litical affairs and leading govern- 
ment officials give the club a 
unique and interesting outlook on 
many political matters. 

Dr. Peel will host the ne.\t 
meeting at his residence in Kra- 
mer Court. The meeting will be 
held on Wednesday, November 
29. All interested students 
equipped with their political 
ideas, whether these be reaction- 
ary, middle-of-the-road, or radi- 
cal, are warmly invited.

In the athletic world we (we. 

meaning the masculine sex). 

sometimes thihk it's all a man's 

world. Either CLC is different 
or this very liberal statement is 
untrue. For instance the other 
day a little bird told me that 
in PK class that day they were 
loarninK to "spike" the volley- 
ball. My immediate response 
was, "You mean to tell me little 
girls at 5" 4" were learning to 
"Spike"! In passing by the 
ctmils I decided I had to see this 
to believe it. Sure enough it was 
true. I have never seen anything 
like it. This may come as a 
shock to some men around here, 
bul one young miss in Alpha 
Hall was clocked at 1:36 in the 
600 yard run during that testing 
period in PE. Put that in your 
coffee cake and think about it 
for awhile. Have no fear men, 
it's when they start taking over 
the football team that we should 
start getting worried. 

The cheerleaders need help. 
Most of all they need suggestions 
on how to raise or obtain some 
money for their much needed out- 
fits. All of them have tried the 
parent angle and have found this 
successful only to the point of 


very limited funds. For those 
who don't know ahout cheerlead- 
ing, the problem of outfitting 
them is now very great. All of 
them have ordered their outfits, 
but now they need the money. 
Any and all suggestions will be 
kindly accepted by them. 

After CLC's smashing victory 
over CLBS on Ni>vcmber 14, the 
hustling team came up against 
some stiffer competition last Fri- 
day and were defeated soundly 
by Glendale College. Although 
CLBS really wasn't much compe- 
tion for the Lutherans they stitl 
played some fine college basket- 
ball. Bruce Wallen. guard for the 
young squad, led the team 
against the Bible Institute with 
32 points for the night's outing, 
Bruce and , Steve Gross, also 
guards on the team, were all over 
the floor stealing the ball and 
making points to put on a fine 
performance for the evening. 

At Glendale however the team 
had a different look. Going 
against Glendale was a little dif- 
ferent. Although the game was 
only a practice game it was 
played under strict game regula- 
tions. In 60 minutes of basketball 
the Lutherans were soundly de- 
feated 122-71 by Glendale.

Volleyball Intramurals 
Spark Enthusiasm 


If you were walking along the 
sidewalk between the dorms and 
First Street last Saturday, you 
probably did not know whether 
the mad fienzy on the tennis 
court was a theater production 
of Al Capp's "Li'l Ahner" by the 
CLC drama club or an attempt 
by the students of California Lu- 
theran College to learn the 
"Twist", the "Fish" and the 
"Rendezvous Stomp" to the tune 
of a referee's whistle. Because 
of the cry of many of the stu- 
dents that we do not have any- 
Ihing to do on weekends, coedu- 
cational volleyball has been or- 
ganized under the direction of 
Mr. John Kahnert. Twelve teams 
of three girls, three boys each, 
played Saturday in an attempt 
to determine the best teams. In 
regular competition a team must 
win two of three games to de- 
feat the other team. Semi-final- 
ists play for the best three of 
five games. Of the seventy-two 
students in competition the larg- 
est concern was that they hoped 
the other students not competing 
at this time would show more 
interest in the future. One coed 
on campus, a cute, five foot four 
freshman, said, "I just love vol- 
leyball!" She expresses the anx- 
ious hopes of all that the tourna- 
ment will be very successful and 
that everyone will have fun. 

Mr. John Kahnert expressed 
his sincere hope that one hundred 
per cent of the student body 
would take an active interest in 
intermurals. Upcoming events 
that are being planned aie: 
weight lifting, basketball, foul 
shooting, tennis, horse shoes, and 
cross country. All boys interested 
in these events please contact 
Mr. Kahnert and sign up now! 

Martinez Paces 
CLC Harriers 

California Lutheran College's 
cross country team placed sec- 
ond in a triangle meet with West- 
mont College and Pasadena Naz- 
arene College last Friday, No- 
vember 17. 

The team was edged out of 
first spot by only two points. 
CLC scored ^0 points, compared 
to Westmont's 38, which was 
good enough to win the meet. 
CLC placed five of their seven 
entries in the meet. Lupe Marti- 
nez placed fourth for the Luther- 
ans with a time of 17:20. Win- 
ning time for the race was 15:40. 
which was a new course record 
for Westmont. 

Ml'. John Kahnert, coach, com- 
mented, "[ was very pleased 
with our boys. They were all run- 
ning against competitors with a 
lot of experience. Even though 
we didn't win the meet the ex- 
perience gained meant much 

Martinez was followed closely 
by Roger Adams, fifth, Russell 
Flora, sixth, Mike Certa, eighth, 
and Nels Olson seventeenth. Jer-

tianson also finished the race but 
did not place in the point col-

CLC's sophomore class spon- 
sored and arranged a gala 
Christmas party, "Christmas 
Fantasy", last Saturday night, 
December 9. Admission to the 
dance consisted of one dollar and 
one canned good. The money and 
food went to needy families with- 
in the neighboring communities. 

Dancing started at 10: 15 
promptly with the rollicking mu- 
sic of the "Gaylads." The "Gay- 
lads" are a local group from 
Thousand Oaks who have do- 
nated mucli of their time and 
musical talents to innumerable 
charities, including the popular 
"teen-canteen" in Thousand 

Dr. Halversen plays the piano as Bill Ewiiig leads CLC stu- 
dents ill Christmas caroling at the "Christmas Fantasy". 

Orchestra, Chapel Choir 
Performance Praised 

On Sunday, December 3, an- 
other first occurred in the his- 
tory of CLC. It was. on this 
day that the newly organized, 
36 member California Lutheran 
College Orchestra, under the di- 
rection of Walter Birkedahl, made 
its premier performance. Assis- 
ted by the CLC Chapel choir, 
the orchestra presented two con- 
certs in (he Newbury Park Acad- 
emy Auditorium. 

Playing to two enthusiastic 
audiences, the orchestra, which 
was organized two months ago. 
showed that it had as a group 
and as indviduals done a great 
deal of work. 

The concert opened with"Sym- 
phony No. 41 in C Major". "Jupi- 
ter Symphony", by Wolfgang Mo- 
zart. Johann Sebastian Bach's 
"Concerto in Fiesto Nativitatis 
Christ" or "Contata No. 142, "To 
Us a Child is Born" was the 
second number on the program. 
This contata was wrtten in six 
parts: chorus. "To Us a Child ih 
Born"; bass aria, "Now Again 
on thy Birthday"; chorus, "Ever 
the Name of God I honor": ten- 
or aria. "Jesus Hear My Praise 
to God," The CLC Chapel Choir 
sang the choruses, and the solo- 
ists were Russell Flora and Otis 

Kline, bass: Bill Ewing. tenor; 
and Carole Dahl, alto. The or- 
chestra concluded the concert 
with L'Arlesienne Suite No. 2 by 
Georges Bizet in which Keith 
Dawson was featuied as solo flu- 

The orchestra personnel con- 
sisted of as follows: Betty Bowen. 
principal of first violins and con- 
cert mistress; Wilber Bowers. 
John Kinseth. Dorothy Wilson, 
Carolyn Dahl. and Robert Stall- 
er. first violins; Kathy Klug, 
principal, Diane Libbach, Linda 
Rawson, Michael Kicenski. and 
Sharen Alfred, second violins; 
Luba Staller, principal, James 
Funkhouser. Anne Wieman. and 
Clara Caldwell, cellos; Qaudia 
Avery, string bass; Keith Daw- 
son. Erma Moorefield, Marilyn 
Ross, Janet Nordmeyer. and 
Mary Gunning, flute; Arthur 
Moorefeild and Dennis Bernt- 
son, clarinet; Caryl Bigeno, alto 
saxophone; Edward Bigenko. ba- 
soon; Gordon Nilsen and Allen 
Giidai-d, trumpet; David Traudt 
and Sue Thouren, French horn; 
Frederick Lorenz, trombone; 
Gary Worner, tuba; Maurine 
Birkedahl, piano and lympani; 
aqd John Wotd and Tom Lang- 
haug, percussion. 

Oaks. Their leader, Odie Camp- 
bell, 23. originally from Bakers- 
field, founded the group nearly 
three years ago. The other mem- 
bers of the combo that were fea- 
tured at the party were Jesse 
Campbell, Larry Morris. Jeri-y 
Morris, and Duke Rattray. Duke, 
incidentally, is a member of two 
pther local bands, the "Keys" 
and the "Rhythm Jacks." 

At eleven o'clock, the dancing 
stopped, and Dr. Howard Halvor- 
sen played the piano as Bill 
Ewing led the festive group in 
Christmas caroling. Everybody 
joined in. and the spirit of 
Christmas rang throughout Beta 

Dr. Or\-iIIp Dahl, President of 
CLC, dropped by the party. 
When asked how he was enjoying 
it. he answered, "Real tine. The 
main thing is that the students 
are having fun." 

The band resumed playing and 
dancing began again. 

Bandleader Odie Campbell 
asked if there was any talent in 
the house. A hushed silence fol- 
lowed, and then CLC's basket- 
ball team cheered and yelled en- 
couragement to their fellow team- 
mate. Al Howe, as they dragged 
him up to the microphone. Al 
soon got over his modesty and 
burst into his rapturous tenor 
voice singing "It's the Talk of 
the Town" and "White Christ- 
mas." The audience cheered and 
applauded thunderously. 

Al was" followed by another 
CLC student. Allan Olson, who 
sang the popular song, "Hully. 
Gully." The audience response 
was equally as great. 

The walls shook as Odie Camp- 
bell then led the happy group in 
chorus' of "When the Saints Go 
Marching In." 

More talent was found in the 
hands of Duke Rattray as he 
beat out "Lendell's Boogie" on 
the piano to the awesome au- 

Dancing and general socializ- 
ing followed, but only to be in- 
terrupted at the stroke of mid- 
night when everybody sang "Hap- 
py Birthday" to the flabbergasted 
Dr. Robert S. Hage. Dean of Stu- 

The incomparable "Gaylads" 
concluded the memorable occa- 
sion with some soft, lilting music. 

The entire sophomore class 
lent a helping hand in planning 
this first CLC Christmas party, 
"Christmas Fantasy." Those who 
deserve special recognition and 
thanks are: Diane Tulles, chair- 
man; and Jack Knisley, Don 
Meyer, Ted Diemer, Sandy Mc- 
Connell, Carolyn Peterson, Don 
DeMai-s, M a r c i a Ki-etchmar.

Powers' Play Production 
Proclaimed Success at CLC 

"Christmas Seasoning", CLC's 

first dramatic production, from 

which practically nobody ex- 
pected anything, turned out to 
be something wonderful in the 
eyes of the capacity audiences 
last week end. Nothing was ex- 
pected because the CLC Drama 
Workshop had very little with 
which to work. But it seems that 
the individuals involved "rose 
above" the situation to present 
drama in spite of the seeming 
handicaps of lack of theatre fa- 
cilities and experience. A good 
share of the credit goes to Bar- 
bara Hudson Powers, CLC's 
Theatre Arts Instructor, who 
wrote and directed the one act 
production presented December 
7 through 9 in Beta Hall. 

"Christmas Seasoning", a play 
within a play, featured a box 
stage, make-shift lighting, no 
curtain, no make-up, no sceneiy, 
a very skeptical group of theatre 
students, and a vei-y determined 
director who was certain that her 
students could "rise above" it all 
and present the scenes of the 
Christmas Story in spite of 
themselves and the limited equip- 
ment. Mrs. Powers herself played 
Miss Wilson, the director. Tlie 
rest of the cast included Al Gil- 
dard as Don (Joseph), Marilyn 
Anderson as Susan (Mary), Tom 
Severtson as Dave, Ken Kulp as 
Gabriel, Otis Kline as Kenny 
(narrator). Tim Storvick as Ed. 
Sybil Home as Betty (Elizabeth), 
Larry Lorfing as the house man- 
ager. Susan Grimwood as Helen, 
Sally Ausan as Janet. Brenda 
Priest as Sally, John Lundbiad 

as Stan. Linda Minah as Pam. 
Pat Gallagher as Jane, Mike 
Robertson as John, and Mai-y 
Sievers as Jean. 

The Technical Staff included 
Carol Schultt. Assistant Director; 
Mike Robertson, Technical Direc- 
tor: Howard Stemson and Al Gil- 
dard. lighting; Larry Lorfing, 
House Manager: Linda Minah, 
properties; and Melinda Hunter, 
costumes. A share of credit also 
goes to a group from the CLC 
choirs, under the direction of C. 
Robert Zimmerman, who assisted 
as the voices of the angel choir. 
Mrs. Powers and others have 
expressed much satisfaction con- 
cerning this recent co-operation 
between CLC's Music and Drama 

The very fact that a play has 
been presented is a credit to 
CLC. No dramatic productions 
were scheduled for CLC's fii-st 
academic year; the initiative for 
anything presented was left en- 
tirely to those who wished to 
take on the r e s p o n s i b i I i ty. 
"Christmas Seasoning" then, was 
a product not of the Theatre 
Asts, Oral Interpretation and 
Speech classes (but membership 
is not restricted) who meet one 
evening a week under the lead- 
ership of Mrs. Powers. The Dra- 
ma Workshop has been working 
on the production of the Christ- 
mas play for neai-ly a month. 

Lately, it seems that the CLC 
family has been caught up and 
enthalled with the combined spir- 
it of the infant college and of 
the blessed Christmas season.

Jon E. Stafsholt 

The lime of year has made 
its appearance once again when 
postal canals are clogged with 
'Dear Santa Claus' letters, when 
department stores' crews are 
doubled to meet the oncoming 
rush of present-buying predators, 
and v\hcn joyous shouts of "Have 
a cool Yule!" or "Have an ec- 
static Xmas!" are uttered from 
every street corner. Yes. this is 
even the hai)py time of the year 
when the bi-annual. Easter- 
Chrislmas Christians go to 

Though the forementioned 
may he an exaggerated, sarcas- 
tic viewpoint, it still carries a 
lot ol truth today. Christmas did 

not used t" be as commercialized 
and unchi'istian as it is now. 
There was a time in the not too 
far remote past when Christmas 
was a time ot resplendent joy, 
a time for a spiritual uplift, a 
time to worship and honor 
Christ's birth, and a time of 
"Merry Christmas!". 

As Christians. let us strive to 
keep 'Christ' in 'Christmas', and 
let us retain this true spirit ot 
Christmas throughout the com- 
ing holidays, and more impor- 
tant, let us keep the true spirit 
of Christ alive throughout our 
very lives. 

The editor wishes you a 
blessed, iVIerry Christmas!

Public Opinion Poll 

A public opinion poll was re- 
cently taken among some CLC 
students asking the question, 
"What are you looking forward 
to most about Christmas vaca- 
tion?", ileie are some of the re- 

Don DeMars: 

"I am looking forward to re- 
orientation of my studies and al- 
so my relationship to the true 
significance of Christmas; the 
hiith of Christ."

Rain, Rain, Rain 

With the familiar words "and 
the orange trees haven't been 
watered for the last eighteen 
months" ringing in their ears. 
CLC's water soaked, mud-splash- 
ed students swam to their classes 
on the 22 of November. 

Although designed to withstand 
a storm, the campus failed, did 
not pass its first major test. 1.49 
inches ot rain suddenly became 
four inches of water when the 
drain in the patio of the boys 
doim become clogged. The art 
of navigation became a require- 
ment as water flooded the side- 
walk between the dorms and 
threatened to make the building 
of an ark a necessity for attend- 
ing classes. 

Leaking rooms, wet shoes, and 
ruined hair-do's were of minor 
importance though, as the daily 
delivei-y of the candy to the 
dorms was threatened when the 
candy tnick became bogged down 
in the mud outside of Alpha Hall. 
True values were momentarily 
forgotten as seven of CLC's more 
athletic young men rushed out 
into the mud to help push the 
mired truck while Reverend Kal- 
las trudged along to class carry- 
ing his lecture stand unaided. 

Even though the rain caused 
much misery for many people at 
least the orange trees got water.

By A. Watters Gildard 

One of the most talked about iiold three hundred chairs and 

subjects on campus the past few Tloly Trinity can just about make 

weeks has been that of compul- it. Where would chapel be lield 

sory chapel. Almost everyone next year with at least two hun- 

agi-ees that they aie against dred more students? 

making chapel tominilsoi-y. 

One of the most difficult prob- 
lems that would be encountered 
with compulsory chapel is the 
enforcement of such an edict. 
How would it be enforced? By 
taking roll or assigning us seats 
and using Ihc faculty as monitors 
to check for vacant seats or hav- 
ing room checks before chapel. 
All these methods are time con- 
suming and impractical. 

If chapel were to he made 
compulsory it seems logical that 
credit would have to be given. 
It would probably be a half unit. 
This half unit credit would prob- 
ably go towards filling the minor 
in religion. But when you start 
giving credit for something you 
run into the problem of grading. 
How could a person possibly be 
graded for chapel except for an 
"f ' grade for not attending? To 
give a test on chapel would be 
next to impossible. What could 
be used foi' questions? Who were 

The above problems are only 
a few of those that would have 
to be encountered and answered 
before we could have compulsory 
chapel. These questions that I 
have brought out have many an- 
swers but at the same time they 
raise many more questions. But 
we should not allow the above 
to lull us into a sense of relaxa- 
tion because they make the prob- 
lem of compulsory chapel seem 
a remote hollow threat of the 
administration. If they felt that 
compulsory chapel would be the 
only way to bolster attendance at 
chapel they would find solutions 
to all the problems that could 
be foreseen and they would come 
up with these solutions in short 

Tlie fact that we can have 
chapel is one of our advantages 
over a state college where they 
don't have chapel, and for that 
matter, they hold a check over 
religious organizations on cam- 

our speakers three weeks ago pus. At a state school God is a 
this past Friday? Or better yet, cloak that you take off at high 
how many of our guest speakers school graduation and don't put 

have been Lutherans? 

Another problem that would 
have to be met and overcome is 
that of where to hold chapel, 
The patio of Alpha Halt will not 

on again until college graduation. 
Here at C.L.C. you get to retain 
the cloak but let's not, through 
our laxness, allow things to go 
to the opposite extreme.

Dean of Students Hage 

Page 3 

Dr. Rolicrl S. Hage, Dean of 
Shidenls and Associate Professor 
in Professonal Studies will be 
working at C.L.C. either super- 
vising activities, counseling, test- 
ing, or with placement, housing, 
admssions or health services if 
you can find him. He is one of 
the busiest men on campus. 

Dean Hage grew up in the 
small farming community of 
Lake Milts, in Northern Iowa. 
His education at St. Olaf College 
was interrupted by World War 
II. and for the next four years he 
was a pilot in the Naval Air 
Corps. While in the service, he 
married F 1 o re n c e Kuhlman. 
whom he had met at St. Olaf. 

He returned to St. Olaf to grad- 
uate wth majors in psychology, 
sociology and biology. At the 
University of Iowa he receved 
a masters degree in coun.-^^ling 
and guidance and also his doc- 
torate in Education with a major 
in educational psychology. 

Dean Hage says of his vocation 
"At Ihe graduate level I had 
decided to prepare for teaching, 
and I found this area the most 

For the next seven years, at 
Washburn University of Topeka 
Kansas, Dean Hage taught in the 
psychology department, was as- 

sistant coach in football, and 
sei-ved as Dean of Men. 

The Hages moved to California 
and, for the next five years Dean 
Hage was associate dean in coun- 
seling and testing at Long Beach 
State College. 

Of the years before Dean Hage 
was called to C.L.C. he recalls, 
"W'-e first heard of this project 
before we came to California and 
followed it \vith much interest. 
We visted the college site on a 
number of occasions." 

One outstanding characteristic 
of the four Hage children is the 
younger, the "redder" their hair. 
James is 5. Nancy 9. Roberta 
14, and Stephen 16. 

"One of our first memories 
of the project is our picnic on 
the lawn in front of the Peterson 
house. The chicken coops and 
barns and machinery were still 
in the original places. Jimmy, 
who was just a toddler, had a 
great time climbing over the ma- 
chinery . . . even necessitating a 
tetanus shot." 

"We are most appreciative to 
get to play a very small part in 
building an institution of this 
type, when we feel that Christ- 
ianity is, without question, a part 
of the solution of today's com- 
plex problems," Dr. Hage con-

Zane's Trace 

The ever-changing college cam- 
pus is more-than-ever changing 
here at CLC. With construction 
slated on several projects, some 
under construction, some on the 
drawing board, and some near- 
ing completion, it is hard to 
keep up with the changes going 
on about us. In the future this 
column shall follow construction 
on and around campus from the 
drawing board to completion. 
Briefly, here's what's brewing 

From the original 207 acres, 
the college has purchased a 60 
acre tract extending the north 
campus westward to the barbed 
wire fence at the top of the cliff. 
Another purchase of 25 acres has 
e.\tended the faculty housing area 
on the south campus westward 
from Third Street. This increases 
our total campus to 292 acres. 

On Monday, November 27, the 
final contract was signed with 
Johnson Brothers of Glendale for 
construction of the Centrum. In- 
cidenlally, one of the two large 
storm drains has already been 
constructed. The large cement 
structure north of Fii'st Street 
is the central power distribution 
station of the campus, and it is 
now functioning. Above it is the 
cafeteria location. 

The nOO foot water well near 
the Zimmerman residence is be- 
ing deactivated and capped af- 
ter an unsuccessful test run. Wa- 
ter output had fallen below 60 
gallons per minute after only two 
hours. Test pumping is being 
considered at the other well site 
on the noilh campus. 

A forged titanium bell now 
stands between four bulletin 
boards on a tower errected in 
the quadrangle. 

Individual postal boxes have 
been installed in the student cen- 
ter's new post office. 

Landscaping still progresses, 
despite the hindrances of our re- 
cent wet weather. 

The World Brotherhood Ex- 
change has moved into its new 
quarters in the newly-completed 
addition to the administration 

Have a good, safe, vacation 
and don't be surprised when you 
return. You'll never know what's 
(going) up! 

German Classes 
Have Program 

Mr. . Brendt Ulken's Gemian 
classes presented a Christmas 
program on Thursday, December 
14, in the recreation room of Al- 
pha Hall. Students, faculty mem- 
bers, and Gennan families in 
the community were invited to 

The program consisted of chor- 
al singing by the German class- 
es. Also included in (he program 
were Bible readings of the story 
of Ihe prophesy and the Christ- 
mas stoi-y in German and Eng- 
lish. "The Three Dark Magi", a 
Christmas stoiy by Wolfgang 
Borchert was read also. 

The program was followed by 
a social hour during which stu- 
dents provided special music.

CLC Touring Choir 
Reaps Acclaim 

The thirty-seven voice C.L.C. 
Concert Choir gave its Christmas 
Concert December 10. 11. and 12 
at Holy Ti-initry Lutheran Church. 

The concert began with their 
Prelude of the "Fanfare for 
Christmas" by Shaw and "Adeste 
Fideles". Already capturing the 
rapt attention of the audience, 
they continued to present sacred 
music for this Christian festive 
season in six main parts. 

Among the selections of Pa(;t 
T were the familiar favorites of 
"Lo. How a Rose" by Praetor- 
ius, and "Born Today" by Swee- 
linck. Part II was "Trio No. 5 
in D Major" by Haydn, pre- 
sented by the CLC Symphony 
String Trio. 

Proceeding with the chords of 
a harp played by Marjorie Bu- 
tock. the angelic voices of the 
Choir Women began Part III, 
"A Ceremony of Carols" by Brit- 
ten, with a candle processional. 
The Choir Men presented "Folk 
Music for Clirislmas". Marilyn 
Anderson added her rich-toned 
contralto 'solo to contrast the 
deep masculine voices in ' 'La 
Virgpn Lava Panales". Other so- 

loists were Bill Ewing, Gordon 
Nilsen, and Dennis Weems. 

The CLC Flute Ensemble 
played two pieces to compose 
Part V. The entire choir again 
reappeared for Part VI. In the 
first selection "Alfred Burt Car- 
ols - Set I" a quartet of Kim 
Bodding. Marcia Peterson, Den- 
nis Weems. and Otis Klein and 
a duet of Carol Dahl and Karen 
Aasen were featured. Miriam 
Blomquist added perfection with 
her soprano .solo in the "Lulla- 
by on Quistmas" by Christian- 
sen. The final selection of the 
evening was "Carol Noel" by 

The first Christmas season of 
CLC has been gi-eatly enriched 
by our choir and Mr. Zimmer- 
man. Our congratulations and 
heart-filled thanks hardly seems

Recently, the Board of College 
Education of the American Lu- 
thei-an Church published a re- 
port on enrollment at the schools 
with which the American Luther- 
an Church is affiliated. Rather 
than reprint the entire report, 
which would be very lengthy, we 
selected several schools which 
would be of interest to the stu- 
dents at CLC. These universities 
and colleges are: (1) Pacific Lu- 
theran Univei-sity, T a c o m a. 
Washington (2) St. Olaf College. 
Northfield. Minnesota (31 Texas 
Lutheran College. Seguin, Texas. 

There are several fields in 
which to compare these institu- 
tions with CLC. These are in the 
areas of credit hours, total en- 
rollment, and geographic origin 
of the students. 

Concerning credit hours. CLC 
has the fewest number of student 
credit hours with a total of 4.462. 
St. Olaf College has the highest 
number with 31,000 hours. Pacific 
Lutheran University, with its 
23.464 hours and Texas Lutheran 
College, with its 10,237 hours, 
serve to point out the next point 
of discussion. 

Enrollment in schools may 
only be compared for 1961 as 
CLC has no past. As is shown 
by the credit hours, St. Olaf does 
have the largest total enrollment 
with 1902 students. PLU follows 
with 17.51 students, and TLC with 
692. CLC started with 300 stu- 
dents for this year. It may l>e 
noted that at PLU and St. Olaf. 
the women outnumber the men 
as they do here at CLC. At PLU, 
the difference is rather pm- 
nounced with seventy-one more 

women than men. St, Olaf has a 
difference of 64. while CLC has 

a difference of approximately 45, 
At all these colleges, the men 
have an advantage because of 
the large selection of compaiw 
ions. Also in the enrollment cate- 
gory is the percentage of Ameri- 
can Lutheran Students attending 
these institutions. The percent- 
age, even though ALC is a 
merged group, is rather note- 
worthy. At CLC, 51.7'.; are ALC; 
at PLU. 50.7 are ALC; at St. 
Olaf. 66.7'; are ALC; and at 
TLC. 61.7'/. are ALC. Concerning 
the total percentage of Luther- 
ans of all groups, CLC and St. 
Olaf are practically identical with 
88.4'; and 88.3'; respectively. 
PLU has the most non- Lutherans 
with 30'; whereas CLC has only 
12' , non-Lutherans. 

Finally, there is the item of 
the geographic origins of the stu- 
dents of these schools. At CLC, 
over 250 of the students are from 
CaUfornia with most of the other 
students from the Midwest and 
West. PLU gathers its students 
from Washington, California, and 
Oregon, mainly. St. Olaf obtains 
its students from Minnesota, Io- 
wa, Wisconsin, and Illinois. At 
TLC, the largest group comes di- 
rectly from Texas with no other 
state sendmg more than 8 stu- 
dents. The college enrollment at 
CLC follows the same pattern as 
these schools with most of the 
students coming from the sur- 
rounding area. TLC is, however, 
the only school which such a 
large portion coming from one 
state as the case for CLC. too.

Basketball is fully on its way 
now. As of my deadline the team 
holds a 2-4 win-loss record. This 
is by no means the greatest, but 
We must realize oui- team is 
made up of only one sophomore 
and (he remaining arc freshmen. 

After observing all the games 
it appears that in the process of 
jelling as a team the boys arc 
having one acute problem, ref- 
erees. In the team's over anx- 
iousness to win and get ahead 
they arc having a lot of trouble 
with their fouling. 

Referees are never a good ex- 
cuse tor losing a game but Tues- 
day, November 5. against the 
Pcppcrdinc Freshmen, they sure 
helped the cause along. After the 
football-type basketball game, 
some of CLC's team members 
came out of the game with only 
minor injuries, such as broken 
ribs, fingers and so on. Good 
clean, hard-fought, aggressive 
basketball is fine, but when its 
gels to the blocking and tackling 
stage, something should be done! 
The game started out quite ag- 
gressively, and after ten minutes 
had elapsed, the CLC cagers only 
ti-ailed by two points. Then it all 
started. Pepperdine, seeing very 
clearly that the refs were not 
calling fouls closely or hardly at 
all. switched their offensive plays. 

They went from simple basket- 
ball screens to off-tackle slants 
and power plays. These were car- 
ried out by their guards who 
doubled as halfbacks. Another 
good play was the fullback dive, 
where the guards pull and knock 
down either the forwai-ds or the 
center. The best play was one I 
hadn't seen before. When our of- 
fensive team shot, their defensive 
center would jump on a CLC 
man's back, reach in the basket 
and take the ball out. In most 
leagues this is called goal tend- 
ing but not so in this ragged 
game. When CLC's battered first 
five left the court at half-time 
they looked like they just went 
through a washing machine's 
thiee cycles. 

The second half was the same 
only the roles were reversed. 
CLC went out on the court and 
handed out some of their get 
sick to your stomach medicine 
too. This was to no avail as 
Pepperdine had more depth in 
the line and the game ended with 
the score showing Peppei-dine 79- 
CLC 39. 

All this terrible show of bas- 
ketball could have been avoided 
if the game would have been 
called close from the start. As 
a result neither team would have . 
emphasied the football taetics.

Our California Lutheran Bas- 
ketball team played three games 
last weekend; the Pepperdine 
Frosh on Thursday, the L. A. 
Baptists on Friday, and the Po- 
mona Frosh on Saturday. Thurs- 
day's game against Pepperdine 
was more or less compared to 
a football game where the largest 
factor on the court was the av- 
erage weight of the line. Tlie fi- 
nal score was Pepperdine Frosh 
79. California Lutheran 39. Fri- 
day's game, if it is to be classi- 
fied as Thursday's, would be 
compared to Sherman's March to 
the Sea. where "General Sher- 
man" Schwich led his five to 
a decisive 6.5 to 38 defeat of the 
L. A. Baptists. Saturday's game, 
against Pomona Frosh. again if 
classified as Thursday's and Fri- 
day's, would be said to have been 
the best offensive and defensive 
game played by the California 
Lutheran Basketball team since 
the season began. Before we lost 
Jim Huchthausen and Bruce 
VVahlin to fouls the game was 
somewhat even; but with their 
superior rebounding strength the 
Pomona Frosh went ahead by 
twenty points. With only a feu- 
minutes left to play the' Pomona 
coach let his second string play 
the final moments. Our team tied 
the score several times but were 
never able to take the lead. 
Stuart Major was the most out- 
standing player of the eveninR. 
He excelled on the boards both 
offensively and defensively. Steve 
Gross led the California Lutheran 
"five" with 25 points. The final 
score stood at 72 to 62 for Po- 

After vacation, the team plans 
on having a double practice on 
Saturday. December 30th and a 
single practice on Sunday, De- 
cember 31st, in order to prepare 
for the L. A. Pacific Tourney 
January 2 and 6. Many thanks 
have been said for the tremen- 
dous enthusiasm displayed by the 
students at the basketball games 
played in Camarillo. Let's keep 
it up!

CLC Harriers Close Season 

As the basketball season swings into focus, the cross-country 
season draws to a close. Although this was (he first intercollegiate 
athletic activity for California Lutheran College, the team had a 
fine howing and did well in all their meets. 

Mr. John Kahncrt. cross-country coach, summed it up by say- 
ing, "We had nine good men running for us. We were weakened by 
early season injuries, sickness and lack of depth. Other than that. 
I though the boys did well for themselves and the college this first 
year." The nine boys who competed were: Roger Adams, Roger 
Anderson, Mike Cerda. Jim Chri.stianson, Ru.ssell Flora, Steve Gross, 
Lupe Martinez. Nets Olsen and Bryan Spafford. 

Mr. Kahnert, also track coach, expressed a desire to have more 
boys turn out for track this coming spring .The biggest need is in 
getting boys for field events. 

Listed is a summary of CLC's cross-country meets this season.

Freshman initiation with inter- 
mittent rain showers raged last 
weeic on the CLC campus. Or 
more exactly, the showers raged 
and initiation intermediated as 
there was opportunity. The sopho- 
mores' well laid plans for re- 
quiring the Frosh to paint a 
"CLC" on the side of a hill, for 
taking them to Kangaroo Court, 
and for a grand bonfire finale 
were washed away with wet 

But with all due fairness to 
the Sophomores, considering in 
addition to the weather drawback 
that they are outnumbered by tlie 
Freshmen 3 to 1, it must be 
stated that they succeeded ad- 
mirably in dishing out a sizable 
share of lun-tainted misery dur- 

ing the initiation week. All week 
Freshmen were required to wear 
purple and gold beanies and bibs 
with names onscribed, and to 
recite upon request a memorized 
piece which stated in effect that 
Freshmen are inferior to Sopho- 
mores. On Tuesday Freshmen 
had to wear clothes, picked out 
by their Sophomore buddies. One 
wonders about the artistic tastes 
of the upperclassmen! To any 
unknowing observer, CLC ap- 
peared to be California Lutheran 
Clownery. Especially remem- 
bered is Maiy Lou Melick. And 
students must commend the loy- 
alty of Paul IVIeyer who could be 
seen wearing his beanie over his 
rain hood. 

Perhaps the most brilliant plot 
on the part of the Sophomores 
was to forbid Freshmen the use 
of spoons and forks on Wednes- 
day. This caused: frustration, 
slow eating and hidden silver- 
ware on the part of the Frosh, 
laughter on the part of the Sopho- 
mores, and an overabundant sup- 
ply of the soup of the day on the 
part of the Prophet Company. 
Throughout the whole week, the 
cafeteria was the scene of peanut 
rolling, singing, dancing, and ri- 
ots in general. 

Friday, Freshman girls were 
made to wear bathrobes and 
shower caps which while not add- 
ing to their beauty, at least kept 
the rain off their hair. Friday 
was also the day for tlie new 
look in brief cases — namely the 
pillow case look. The school lin- 
en service will probably bear the 
muddy brunt of that regulation. 

The purpose of Freshman ini- 
tiation, besides its being some- 
what enjoyable, is a matter un- 
known to general knowledge, so 
it is difficult to judge whether 
CLC's initiation was a success or 
not. At any rate, it was enjoy- 
able. It is only regrettable that 
the rain, though it didn't dampen 
the spirit of initiation, certainly 
rusted the mechanics. 

Brenda Kuehnerf, alias "Miss Tumbleweed," does not 

seem fo mind the unusual hairdo and costume the 

sophomores had given her. 

Student Council Follow-up 

CLC's Student Council spent 
three busy days. Feb. 1-3, on 
a retreat at the Miramar Hotel 
in Santa Barbara to plan this 
semester activities, ev&luate 
last semester's activities, dis- 
cuss the constitution and make 
plans for putting it into active 
working order, and decide on 
the policies to be followed in 
future years. 

Because of the resignations 
of President Al Goldman and 
Vice-president JoAnn Krause, 
Treasurer Bill Ewing served 
as President pro-tern of the 
council. Other Student Council 
members in attendance were: 
Carolyn Cottom, Secretary; 
George EIngdahl, Traditions 
Commissioner; Linda Gulsrud, 
Alpha Hall President; Sonja 
Hayden, Social Commissioner; 
Judy Jacobson, Publicity Com- 
missioner; Anne Jolly, Elec- 
tions Commissioner; John Mc- 
Cune, Constitution Committee 
Chairman; Don Meyer, Soph- 
omore Class President; Paul 
Meyer, Freshman Class Presi- 
dent; Terry Molnar, Chapel 
Commissioner; and Jon Stsif- 
sholt. Publications Commis- 
sioner. Dr. Robert Hage, Dean 
of Students, served as the ad- 
visor to the group. 

Dr. Orville Dahl, President ' 
of the College, and Dr. Bjor- 
ness, future campus dentist, 
were in attendance on Febru- 
ary 3 and volunteered many 
helpful suggestions. 

The intended goals of the 
retreat were met and accom- 
plished, and the Student Coun- 
cil members are again busily 
at work on the CLC campus, 
i At the weekly Student Coun- 
cil meeting on February 8, the 
retreat was evaluated and de- 
tails for the elections were 
discussed. Also, there were re- 
ports from the two class meet- 
ings and a discussion of a 
Student Conference at Wart- 

burg College. $25.00 was issued 
to each of the two classes 
to help with their expenses. 
Dr. Hage was also at the meet- 
ing and gave a short report. 
The Student Council meets 
every Thursday evening at 
7:15, and any inteersted stu- 
dents are welcome to attend. 

New ScL-Math. 

President Orville Dahl has re- 
cently announced that the Science 
and Mathematics Department at 
CLC will be headed next fall by 
Dr. William L. Strunk who is 
presently Chairman of the Divi- 
sion of Science at Pacific Luther- 
an University. 

Dr. Strunk received his A.B. 
and M.S. degrees from the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota and earned 
his doctoral in science at the 
University of Michigan. He 
served as Chairman of the De- 
partment of Science at Luther 
College in Decorah, Iowa, for 
twelve years and was Director of 
Student Health Service at St. Olaf 
College for two years. In 1941 Dr. 
Strunk was appointed Commis- 
sioner ot Conservation of Minne- 
sota by Governor Harold Stasson, 
a position he held for two years. 

Lt. Colonel Strunk then served 
as military governor of the Army 
of Occupation in charge of the 
natural resources of Northern 
Germany until 1946. Dr. Strunk, 
one of the nation's foremost re- 
search analysts, has been en- 
gaged in special research pro- 
jects at the University of Minne- 
sota, University of Wisconsin, 
University of Chicago, and Ox- 
ford University. 

Dr. and Mrs. Strunk plan to 
arrive in Thousand Oaks early 
this summer and will take resi- 
dence in Mountclef Village. 

Dr. Hermann Waetjen 
Addresses Student 

Dr. Hermann Waetjen, in- 
ternationally-known New Test- 
ament authority, spoke on 
'The Tension Between His- 
torical Factualness and Mean- 
ing in the New Testament" 
before the CLC student body 
and faculty. The event was 
sponsored by the Philosophy 

Citing examples from the 
accounts of the Gospel, Dr. 
Waetjen explained that it is 
irrelevant whether the story 
of Iferod's slaughter of the 
infants or the report of the 
dead rising at the hour of 
Jesus' death are factual; what 
they mean to say is important: 
with Jesus God has entered 
history. He went on to say 
that the New Testament wri- 
ters were not concerned with 
writing factual history. "Only 
after they had come to believe 
in Jesus as the Risen Lord 
did they interpret events of 
his life in the light of that 
faith. They saw meaning in 
those events and conveyed 
that meaning to the early 
church." Waetjen went on to 
say that events have no self- 
evident meaning; meaning is 
attributed to them from the 

Washing the cafeteria floor with a handkerchief and a glass of 
water was all in the day's work for freshman Kathy Jo Smith. 


Powerful chorales, contem- 
porary works, arrangements 
of familiar hymns, and class- 
ical treasures spanning four 
centuries were included in the 
program presented here Feb- 
ruary 13, 1962, by the Pacific 
Lutheran University Choir of 
the West. 

The 58-voice acapella choir 
from Tacoma, Washington, 
gave its sacred concert beneath 
a cloudy sky in the patio of 
Alpha HaU. 

Under the direction of Pro- 
fessor Gunnar J. Malmin, now 
in his 25th year as conductor, 
the choir opened its program 
with the motet "Be Not Afraid" 
by Johann Sebastian Bach. 
Next the choir sang "Offer 
Unto God" from the powerful 
work. "Psalm 50." by the late 
F. Melius Christianson, the fa- 
ther of acapella choral singing 
in America. 

"Exultate Deo" (Rejoice in 
IJie Lord), a brilliant work by 
the contemporary French com- 
poser. Francis Poulenc, opened 

the next section. This was fol- 
lowed by two negro spirituals. 
These were "Let Us Cheer the 
Weary Traveler," by R. Ne- 
thaniel Dett, and "Oh, What a 
Beautiful City," by William 

An anthem depicting the res- 
urrection of Christ, "Ascendit 
Deus" (God Ascended), by Ja- 
cobus Gallus followed these 
two spirituals. 

The concert was closed with 
"Beautiful Savior," and the au- 
dience joined in to sing the 
last chorus. 

Over 300 students and facul- 
ty members were in attend- 
ance at the concert. 

The choir was invited to 
slay for the afternoon and 
tour the CLC campus and eat 
lunch in the cafeteria. They 
hoarded their two special bus- 
es at 3 pm and set off once 
moi-e on the last leg of their 
tour. Tuesday evening they 
gave another concert at Ven-

Jon E, Stafsholt 

students, why are you at Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College and not 
at some other college? Does this 
question sound easy to answer? 
Well, the real answer may not 
be as foremost in your mind as 
you may think. A comparison of 
CLC and other colleges would re- 
veal that: some have equivalent 
and, a few, better staffs of out- 
standing professors; many other 
colleges have bigger and better 
swimming pools; others may 
serve better food in the cafeteria: 
many may have more books in 
their libraries: many may have 
better student accomodations 
and; not only all these, but you 
can attend many other colleges 
more cheaply than CLC. All 
right, now we have narrowed the 
answer down considerably. Stu- 
dents, why are you at CLC? The 
answer, of course, is for Chris- 
tian development, and the exter- 
nal sign of this is found in the 
way we act and in chapel at- 
tendance. Fortunately, the major- 
ity of students already realize 
this, and as for the loud minor- 
ity who do not, it is time that 
they wake up and see the light! 
Chapel is an integral part of 
the composite whole of this cam- 
pus community, even though it 
is an individual commitment of 
whether or not to attend. 

Because this Ohrtstian develop- 

ment is such an outstanding and 
important facet of CLC, it is 
what hundreds of outsiders from 
all over the nation intend to see 
manifested In this student body. 
An example of this is found in 
the true story of a commercial 
airline pilot who. though he never 
set foot on this campus, read 
about the "drawing board Lu- 
theran college," and, more than 
anything, he wanted to send his 
two young sons to this institution 
when they reached the age. When 
he was killed in an airplane crash 
over New York, his young widow 
asked that instead of flowers be- 
ing sent to his funeral from the 
many friends who knew and 
loved him. gifts be sent to the 
proposed Lutheran college in Cal- 
ifornia. CLC received over 51600 
in gifts from these people. 

However, this incident is just 
one of many, CLC is being 
scrutinized by innumerable peo- 
ple, and hundreds of them are 
putting faith in this college. They 
are thinking of this young school 
as they would a young boy and 
asking themselves, "What will he 
be like when he grows up?" 

Most of the students here want 
CLC to "grow up" strong. These 
students have put faith in this 
college, and these students know 
why they are at California Lu- 
theran College, and they talte 
pride in it. Do you?

HAPPY TALK Letters to tiie Editor: 

with Schultzee 

Hasn't Freshman initiation 
been fun? I must also add that 
it has been very educational. The 
past week has cleared up a long 
standing problem I had once 
thought of, that is, how does a 
caveman feel when he eats? 

It is a shame the fellow who 
decided to do away with the un- 
necessary inventions called the 
fork and spoon, forgot or merely 
overlooked the fact that he left 
some of his own fellow sopho- 
mores in the same predicament 
as the freshmen. 

On the whole I think everybody 
has gotten one laugh, at least, 
from the crazy selection of 
clothes and silly hairdos the 
freshmen exhibited a few days 
ago. I think for once the fresh- 
men fellows discovered how the 
girls feel about trying to keep 
a fresh coat of lipstick on all day. 
Fun isn't it? Say fellows did you 
see how your favorite girl looked 
without any make-up? I should 
think she looked a little dead. 
It's shocking what a little color 
will do for a person! 

But now all is back to normal, 
well almost, and everyone realiz- 
es it was all in fun. What I would 
like to know is how you people 
who wore two different shoes are 
going to wear out the other un- 
matching pair? Maybe we should 
institute an ujimatching shoe day 
for those other two shoes that 
were left out. 

Mofher-Daughfer Tea 

The women of CLC are invit- 
ing their Mothers up to spend 
the week-end of February 24-25 
with them. The Mothers will ar- 
rive sometime Saturday and 
leave Sunday. 

The Committee in charge of 
this affair has planned many 
events to entertain the Mothers. 
Saturday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. 
there will be a Tea with the 
theme "Show Boat." Saturday 
night there will be a basketball 
game. Also Saturday night there 
will be a talent show under the 
direction of Jake Jacobson and 
devotions led by Carol Thompson. 

Saturday night the girls will 
eat dinner with their Mothers in 
the caieteria which will be dec- 
orated by a committee led by 
Linda Pett. The boys are to eat 
first so that the girls and their 
Mothers will be alone in the cafe- 

Sibyle Home is the over-all 
chairman of the Tea. 

The Mothers will stay in theu* 
daughter's rooms Saturday night. 

Sunday will be free for the 
mothers and daughters to do 
whatever they wish. 

The purpose of the get together 
is to let the girls and their mo- 
thers have a week-end of fun to-

Dear Editor, 

Speaking rather bluntly in re- 
ply to our hiding "J.J.". I have 
a few things that I feel should 
be mentioned at this time in re- 
ply to his letter of Jan. 19. 

In the first place, Mr. "J.J.", 
if you feel so strongly about this 
matter, why hide behind the 
cloak of anonimity in making 
your bold accusations? 

Also, if you haven't by this 
time discovered that, believe it 
or not, you are fast approaching 
marriageable age and soon will 
have to make some important de- 
cisions concerning the possibility 
of marriage. The sooner you 
realize this the better off you will 
be. So, until you grow-up. Mr. 
"J.J.", expect no sympathy or 
attention from any of the honest 
goal-seeking girls of CLC, and 
remember the next time you 
stroll down tbe sidewalk, receiv- 
ing nothing but sneers from the 

girls, you brought this all on 
Fair enough? 


Dear Editor, 

In the last issue of the 
Mountclef Echo, a letter was 
|)rinted from "J.J." who stated 
that, "Why can't women be 
women, and let the men be 
men and not boyfriends?" Per- 
sonally, the men probably do 
not care anyway. Even if they 
did care, they would not com- 
plain to the editor. Most of 
the "dating" girls on our cam- 
pus have their own boyfriends 
at home, so that their feelings 
toward a boy at this college 
are second rate. Most of the 
girls have been very sensible. 
If anybody has acted in child- 
ish ways befitting a junior 
high school student, "he" most 
likely is not living In Alpha 
Hall! S.L.L. 

An Essay On Fear 

By Sunny 
Often when one ponders that 
emotion called fear, he is left 
with a feeling of loathing, dis- 
gust, or even hatred. Why is this 
so? It seems that people always 
treat fear as a phenomenon that 
should be avoided at alt cost 
Individuals and nations alike are 
incessantly striving for security, 
or to give another meaning, lack 
of fear. Apparently the ideal state 
of mind, the blissful paradise, is 
lack of fear. To some few, how- 
ever, this is not so. Their opin- 
ion follows a sound logic. That 
is we often grow bored: life loses 
much of its appeal. This is be- 
cause, to them, adventure is non- 
existant. Now don't misunder- 
stand, being adventurous doesn't 
necessarily mean becoming an- 
other Stanley or Livingston, 
forming a s^ari and tramping 
through Africa or some other ex- 
otic far-off land. One can find 
adventure in any number of little 
domestic mental intrigues. And 

in my opinion, fear is the most 
refreshing and real adventure of 
all. What more can you ask? 
Fear has plot, emotion and im- 
pact. Perhaps you don't realize 
it. but occasionally you have a 
situation in which you experience 
great fear; but by one way or 
another you solved this problem, 
and much later you've looked 
back on that fear with a touch 
of secret pleasure. Now this is 
impossible with an irrationad, 
neurotic fear, and not possible 
with that dull aching omnipres- 
ent, almost unconscious type. But 
when one experiences a real nat- 
ural danger, the fear is looked 
back on with a sort of hidden 
pride. If a person fears nothing, 
he is a fool not aware of the 
world's pitfalls smd traps. If he 
fears, it conditions his mind, 
tones his spirit against break- 
down bi face of trial. In fat 
nothing matures one more thor- 
oughly than being subjected to 
good honest fear. 

Chapel Sees New Personalities 

like him, people must have cour- 
age to buck the crowd when hon- 
esty is at stake. 

. . . Mr. Dorance Anderson, the 
dentist from Santa Barbara, who 
for two consecutive years has giv- 
en two months of each summer 
to practice in underdeveloped 
countries, namely Madagasgar 
and Napal? He does these worits 
of Christian love under his own 
personal financing and in associ- 
ation with the World Brotherhood

. . . Mr. Vic Palmieri who is 
the head of the Janss Corporation

the ASB on the necessity of main- 
taining a cool head in our trou-

cent breeding of the fear of Com- 
munism, Mr. Palmieri pleaded 
for a note of sanity from the 
American people. The hysteria of 
the sports arena and the witch- 
hunting of the textbook discrim- 
ination is hatfdly an appropriate 
attitude in such a serious situa- 
tion as is ours today. We must 
maintain a rational sense of bal- 
ance — recognize the problems but 
do not pcuiic!

who dares to be different? Mr. 
Runyon is the editor of the 
Thousand Oaks Chronicle. He is

CLC Literary Boole Review 

By Linda 

Do you sometimes find your- 
self losing contact with your 
Heavenly Father? It's hard to 
find time and especially to find 
a place to have that essential 
and meaningful meditation time: 
Classes, meetings, roommates, 
radios ... all these things pull 
■us into the bu^ stream of life 
; which can pull us under if we 
are not on guard. 
Sometimes when we find that 
.? moment for meditation, it is hard 
to express our thanks, our praise, 
our needs and our desires. In his 
book "God's Promises Eind Our 
Prayers", J. C. K. Preus, known 
to many of us as the longstand- 


ing secretary of the Board of 
Christian Education of the Evan- 
gelical Lutheran Church, has a 
collection of prayers helpful to 
individuals, families and groups 
based on God's promises to us 
in Scripture. 

There are prayers for daily 
use, festival and special church 
days, home and family, nature, 
national holidays, and a gi-oup of 
selected prayers such as St. Au- 
gustine's Prayer and table pray- 

This book, God's Promises and 
Our Prayers, would be valuable 
for you or your family to own 
and use.

By Zane 

Rain. That seems to be the 
topic of discussion today. Not on- 
ly has rain hindered construction 
work on campus, but it has also 
made student life miserable. 
Frosh initiation week lost most 
of its spirit as the water deluged 
upon the campus. Moorpark Road 
has been flooded. Even Holy Trin- 
ity Lutheran Church was cut off 
by the rains, and had to hold last 
Sunday's services in the recrea- 
tion room of the men's dorm. 

The rain on the weekend of 
January 27-28 considerably de- 
layed work on the second of the 
Centi-um storm drains. Several 
tons of fill dirt and mud came 
crashing down on the erected 
forms. Work crews were unable 
to remove the mud and demol- 
ished foi-ms until the semester 

Between storms, three Centrum 
buildings spread their concrete 
and steel roots into the earth. 
They are one of the shopping 
center units, the bank, and the

ready has some plumbing, elec- 
trical conduit, and several brick 
walls have begun to rise. The re- 
maining buildings are being laid

result of machine nailing the 
floors instead of nailing them by 
hand. Alpha Hall does not have 
this problem since their floors 
were hand nailed initially.

Echo Sports Dept. 
Salutes Judy Atrops 

The California Lutheran Col- 
lege Mountclef Echo Sports De- 
partment wishes to salute Judy 
Atrops, a brilliant student and a 
very adept athlete. Judy was in- 
vited to compete in the Los An- 
geles Invitational Indoor Track 
Meet at the Sports Arena, Jan- 
uary 20th. She ran against lour 
other outstanding women track 
Btars. One of whom was Judy 
Shapiro, a nationally known run- 
ner. The five ran in a new event 
for women — the 500 yard run. 
Judy placed third, ten yards be- 
hind the second place runner. 
For Judy it was her all time best. 

For the girls who would like 
to follow in Judy's footsteps, the 
following workout, which Judy 
ran in preparation for the in- 
vitational meet, is required: one 
880 yard run (to warm up), four 
100 yanl dashes (windsprints), 
two 220 yard dashes, three 330 
yard dashes, and one 880 yard 
Jog {to cool down). 

Judy worked out every day, 
and as Mr. John Kahnert said. 
1 "Judy has a very important 
quality — the desire to get the 
job done. As a middle distance 
runner, Judy has great possibili- 
ties. If she works hard, she will 
' have a good chance to make the 
1964 Olympics, in Tokyo."

Regents Vote 
For Football 

Another expanding step of 
CLC's athletic department! 
The Board of Regents, during 
their January 22 conference, 
voted unanimously to add foot- 
ball to our progressing list of 
inter-collegiate athletics. The 
approval took place in the con- 
ference room of the campus 
library. Our faculty dissented, 
stressing the expansion of our 
library which needs several 
more volumes than are avail- 
able. The victory however, 
goes to the Regents. 

Football is no stranger to 
our campus. Pastor Kallas con- 
ducted a series of weekly 
workouts last fall and Jack 
Kniseley initiated intramural 
football among living groups. 
Intramurals fizzed out due to 
a few minor problems: Jerry 
Bell's broken nose (chalk one 
up for Paul Christ), Charley 
Horses and living group dis- 
organization to name a few. 
At present the construction 
of a temporary field for foot- 
ball, baseball, and track has 
been started on the North side 
of Olson Road. This will be 
used until the permanent pliys- 
ical education complex is built. 
Work on the latter is slated 
to begin later in the year. 


By George Engdahl 

CLC's wiped out basketball 
team came through with a real 
team victory against Southern 
California College last February 
8. With the loss of Bruce Wahlin 
who transfered, and Steve Gross. 
Jerry Bell, and Greg Schmit 
because of grades, the big Lutes 
had the task of regrouping the 
forces. With only two days of 
practice as a new unit, the 
team looked a little sloppy. 
On an athletic team, you just 
don't take away three first string 
players and expect to keep on 
winning. With the loss of Wahlin. 
it took two games to get going 
again. One would expect this to 
be no trouble because they have 
practiced together all season. 
This is not true. Those players 
on the first squad were just to 
the point of learning everyone 
else's moves. Now the new team 
must start all over again. Don't 
give up on the team! They are 
not as strong as before, but they 
are going to hustle more than 
ever before. What the team needs 
now is a crowd to keep them go-

CLC's temporary athletic fields 
are now under construction, but 
if we have anymore rain like 
last week, the school might as 

well buy a couple of good filters 
and make the lake out there into 
a swimming pool. There is 
enough water out there, and all 
that needs to be done is to clean 
it up a little. The track men are 
badly in need of a place to work 
out, and the baseball team will 
probably end up playing in the 
street. Don't worry obout it. stu- 
dents. This is all in the growing 
pains of a new coUege. We are 
lucky to have an athletic pro- 
gram as good as the one we have 
this first year of CLC. By the 
way football has been approved 
for 'next fall, which will mean 
a lot to campus life. What does 
more for a college than the good 
old head knocking game of foot-

PE looks like it's going to be 
great fun this semester. Dr. Lu-

weigh tlifting. and Softball will be 
among the activities this spring. 
Get this boys, there will also be 
a couple weeks of square danc-

P.E. Activities 

By Woody Wilk 

Okay kiddies, forget the Twist 
for a few weeks. It's time to 
learn folk dancing. Yes, our 
Physical Education classes are 
going to be square (dancing) les- 
sons beginning February 19 and 
ending March 2. No. Ben Fred- 
ricks, the Soupy Sales Shuffle 
will not be included. Sorry, Dr. 
Schwich and Mr. Kahnert will be 
in charge of instruction with as- 
sistance from Miss Amundsen 
and Miss Dypvig. 

Included in this semester's cur- 
ricula is more emphasis on class 
attendance and assignments. In 
addition to the featured folk 
dancing, many other activities 
are included in the semester out- 
line. Track and field, softball, 
soccer, speedball, and recreation- 
al games round out the list. 

Attendance at football games 
next fall will depend largely on 
the progress the activities com- 
mittee has made regarding their 
scheduling events.

The day of Jan. 13 began as 
the usual windy Saturday on the 
CLC campus, but by night- 
fall an event had occured which 

resulted in the expiration of pent 
up aggressions, one totaled '39 
Chevrolet, and $19.33 gross profit 
in the fist of Frosh Treasurer.

Music Students Look Ahead 

All CLC music students are 
anxiously looking ahead to a busy 
and exciting spring semester 
which will be climaxed by the 
pre-Easter tour scheduled for 
April 13-18. The tour will bring 
the entire CLC music program 
into prominance throughout the 
Southern Calilornia area. Ou this 
tour will be featured the String 
Ensemble, under the direction of 
Mrs. Bowen. the Instrumental 
Ensemble, with Mr. Birkedahl 
directing, and the Concert Choir, 
directed by Mr. Zimmerman. 
Also featured as faculty soloists 
will be Mrs. Bowen. Mr. Birke- 
dahl, and Mr. Moorefield. 

The String Ensemble promises 
to be an exceptionally fine group, 

Chinese Banquet 

Tonight again is one of those 
special times in the cafeteria, 
liiis time we are having a Chin- 
ese Banquet. There will be eat- 
ing, singing, and a guest speak- 
er. You will be eating with chop 
slicks and sitting on the floor. 

Here is a quote from the chair- 
man of the committe in charge 
of this dinner, Judy Schott. 
"Those students whose knees 
have a tendency to crack are 
urged to limber up in order to 
prevent a dull roar when every- 
one sits on the floor. Also, large 
napkins are advisable if your 
fingers are not adapt to using 
chop sticks. Ciiing Chang music 
will provide a background for 
the dinner. Everyone is invited 
to join in the gaiety and dress 
accordingly if possible." 

but several more musicians are 
needed for the second semester. 
If interested, contact any mem- 
ber of the music faculty now. 

Besides the Concert Choir, 
there are two other vocal groups 
active on the campus at the pre- 
sent time. One. the Chapel Clioir. 
will snon be assuming the duty 
of providing the special music 
for our Monday, Wednesday. 
Friday chapel excercises. This 
choir provides an excellent op- 
portunity for anyone with the 
desire to sing to do so without 
having had any previous musi- 
cal training or voice lessons. 
Right now is the perfect chance 
for this type of person to join the 
choir and join In the fun and 
fellowship of choir while also 
doing his part towards making 
the chapel exercises more 
meaningful for his fellow stu- 
dents. So, fellows especially, 
don't be shy, join now. 

A recently formed musical or- 
ganization on campus is the as 
yet. unnamed select small en- 
semble. This group of sixteen 
singers and accompianist will 
represent the school at functions 
where it would be impractical 
for the entire Concert Choir to 

Named by Mr. Zimmerman to 
this group were; Karon Aasen, 
Marilee Alne, Marilyn Anderson, 
Miriam Bloomquist, Kim Bod- 
ding. Carole Dahl, Joan Fleisch- 
mann. Linda Gulsrud, Marsha 
Peterson, Steve Belgum. Jim 
Christiansen. Bill Ewing, Rus- 
sell Flora, Otis Kline, Paul 
Meyer, Bryan Spafford. and Den- 
nis VVeems. 

Brian Spafford — had occured 
and deemed the day no longer 
ordinary. The event was the 
Frosh Class "Car Smash," held 
between 1 and 3 P.M. on the 
other side of the road at the 
north end of 2nd Sti-eet. The 
"Car Smash" (for the unknow- 
ing ones among the ranks of 
readers! was a social function 
whereby those in attendance rid 
themselves of aggressive ten- 
dencies by taking a sledge ham- 
mer in hand and bamming away 
at poor innocent aulo whose 
component parts had been pre- 
designated to take on the iden- 
ties of various CLC personages 
(i.e. right rear bumper dedicated 
to Dean Hage) The opportuni- 
ties for slamming parts were 
sold to the highest bidder. 

The smashing idea was born 
of Brian at a Frosh class execu- 
tive board meeting and nursed 
to mature actuallity by him and 
the other class officers: President 
Paul Meyer, Vice President Grant 
Holley, and Secretary Betsy 
Ross. Others who gave of their 
time and talents were: Ken Culp 
with his resounding voice who 
served as auctioneer, Cheei-lead- 
er Gary Alexander who incited 
the crowd to aggi'essive action. 
Poster Painting Jake who pub- 
licized, and Nurses Marilyn 
Schneider and Nancy Landdeck 
who stood by in case of blood. 

The bidding ran high for "Dil- 
le". "Gronlund", "Kallas", and 
"Hage". Mrs. Kallas paid S1.0.=) 
for five slams at her husband. 
Pastor Kallas, when asked to 
take a free swing, replied that he 
would wait until he got home. 
Gary Cockrell broke the sledge 
hammer on "The Prophet Com- 

Paul Meyer, wlien asked who 
did what in organizing the affair, 
stated that Grant had labeled 
the parts, that he and Grant and 
Tim Haines had taped the win- 
dows, that Brian had secured the 
sledge hammer, Ihat Betsy had 
gotten the change, and that it 
was Jim Huchtbausen's trunk 
that they used to keep the money 
in. When asked how much money 
the Frosh class cleared, he said. 
"$19.33 less whatever it costs for 
a sledge hammer and $10.00 for 
the car." 

But the real human interest 
story is centered around the '39 
Chevy coupe that bore the brunt 
and slam of the project. It was 
owned by Stewart Major and 
Karsten Lundring. They hated to 
part with it, but at times "mone- 
tary values came before personal 
wishes." When asked for some 
details about the car. Stewart 
stated that it was "a simple car 
of exquisite beauty." It was 
painted by Mallas and Harrison 
(racing stripes — sideways). It 
has six tires (both spare flatl. It 
had a chrome handle on the glove 
compartment and an over-sized 
fan belt. It didn't have a gas 
pedal or a horn, the wipers didn't 

Space Age Bell 

A new structure has recently 
risen on campus. It stands at 
the east end of the quadrangle 
between the student center and 
the library. It towers above the 
surrounding buildings, enveloped 
by four massive steel beams. A 
large square framework is sit- 
uated at the base. The space 
age has come to CLC. 

What is it? This is the south 
campus bell tower and master 
bulletin board. The fluorescent 
lighted bulletin boards are now 
being constructed. They will soon 
be colligated onto the framework 
projecting fa-om the tower. 

Bulletin boards are not space 
age, nor to any extent is the 
design of the tower. What is 
then? The unique bell is. 

The stoi-y of the bell opens at 
1 h e Archturus Manufacturing 
Company in Venice, California. 
A solid fillet of titanium has just 
been drop forged in a 25,000 
pound steam drop hammer into 
a perfect hemisphere, one-half 
inch thick and 25 inches in di- 
ameter. Had it not been rejected 
because of a small but critical 
dimensional imperfection, 
it would have been welded to an 
identical hemisphere to make a 

work and the left front window 
was already out. 

Karsten moaned. "It had per- 
sonality. I loved it and every- 

thing in it." 

An when asked what they plan- 
ned to do without it, Stewart 
stated, "I plan to ciy a lot. ' 

Pictured above is freshman. Ken Culp, serving as auctioneer

Royalty on CLC Campus 

Royalty has come to the (XC 
campus in the person of Mrs. 
B a I' b a r a Powers who was 
crowned "Queen For A Day" on 
television last Wednesday. Regal- 
ity came as a complete surprise 
to Ihe Speech and Drama instruc- 
tor who almost didn't make the 
show! She decided to accompany 
her mother-in-law at the last min- 
ute and they arrived just before 
the doors closed and barely had 
time to write a wish down on the 
card. Mrs. Powers wished for a 
saddle for her daughter's horse 
because now that she had a hoi-se 
after waiting so long for it. she 
had no saddle with which to ride. 

Her wish was granted and her 
daughter received a custom made 
saddle and specially designed 
riding clothes by Roy Rogers' 
tailor plus two weeks on a Dude 
Ranch. Among the gifts for "Her 
Majesty" were a wrist watch; 
hair dryer; mixer; perfume; 
jewelry; cosmetics; washer and 
dryer; sewing machine: towels 
and linens; $200 gift certificate 
from Speigel; Polaroid Camera; 
aluminum ware; dresses; 24 
pairs of nylons: six pairs of 
shoes; six blouses; and a Stauf- 
fer Relaxicisor for remembering 
her whirl of Hollywood. 

She was interviewed and then 
taken to a Hollywood Beauty Sa- 
lon for a complete Max Factor 
make-up and hair styling. She 
then had lunch at the M-G-M lot 
and was taken on a tour. She 
•saw and talked with such celebri- 
ties as Dr. Gillespie (Raymond 
Massey) and Dr. Kildare; Kim 
Novae; James Garner; and Ray 
Milland. Her escort on the tour 

was a Colonel in the English 
Calvary during World War II 
who grew up on Stratford On 
Avon. We can imagine that a 
lot of "shop talk" went on dur- 
ing this tour. 

Following the tour she had din- 
ner at the "Islander" and also 
went to the "Ben Blues" ^lestau- 
rant in Santa Monica, .j 

Following her day on the town 
she settled down in her suite at 
the Hollywood Hotel and was 
awakened the next morning by 
breakfast in bed. "Her Royal 
Highness" said the best part of 
the whole thing was "to come 
back and teach classes!"

truck, Mr. Richard B. McCor-

of Archturus. gave it a swift 
kick, unleasing a profusion of in- 
tense intonation. The truck drove 
away empty, and Mr. McCor- 
mick went home that night with 
a well-scuffed shoe and a deter- 
mination to get some e.\pert opin- 
ions as to whether the rejected 

missile forging's beautiful voice 
would qualify for the role of 
church bell. It did. Noted church 
architects met at the Judson 
Stained Glass Studios in Los An- 
geles, added their praises, and 
scuffed their shoes. The new St. 
Michael's Episcopal Church near 
Vandenberg Air Force Base is 
the proud possessor of the first 
titanium forged church bell. Such 
a bell is now a rallying symbol 
on our campus. 

Titanium — as light as alum- 
inum, as strong as steel, more 
corrosion-resistant than stainless 
steel. Titanium — the space age 
metal here today!

Jon E, Stafsholt 

Within this world in which we 
live, we ortcn seem to be sHp- 
ping through the arms of time. 
going at an ever-increasing, ra- 
pid speed trying to reach a des- 
tination, without even noticing 
the things wc i>;iss and frequent- 
ly, not even Idiowing whei-e we 
are going. Thus, is the ecology 
of oui- fast-moving generation. 
Everybody seems in too much of 
a hurry to get somewhere, and 
very few people know just where 
that 'somewhere' is. Granted, the 
horse and buggy era has long 
been extinct, for we are living in 
and era of automation, of roc- 
kets anti missiles, of "thirty- 
minute jet champagne flights." 
and of speed, speed, speed! 
Since it would be nonsensical to 
think we can stop this accellera- 
ter of life, we must then exer- 
cise another and more sound al- 
ternative — that of deciding ex- 
actly where we are going. 

Our gencraiion is analugons to 

a snow ball rolling down a steep 
mountain. The furlhur down it 
rolls, the bigger and stronger it 
gets. The question arises of whe- 
ther it will meet an obstacle in 
its path at the bottom of the 
mountain that will be big enough 
to smash it and utterly destroy 
its gieat mass of hoary beauty 
and strength, or will it roll free- 
ly and smoothly, avoiding all 
obstacles that would hinder its 
progiess and just come to a 
safe, slow .stop at the end of its 
long descent, still retaining the 
prominance of its great, accum- 
lated size. 

So it is with you and I today 
in our lives. Let us all decide 
firmly in our minds what we 
want to get out of life, what we 
want to accomplish, and what 
goal we want to see fulfilled, for 
we were all put on this earth for 
some purpose, and that purpose 
should he discovered before we 
go barrelling head-long down the 
snowy mountain of life.

Letters to the Editor: 

Dear Eililor: 

Remember the good old days? 
Remember the days when a per- 
son was automatically accused of 
being in love if he or she ever 
mentioned the name of a person 
of the opposite sex? If you were 
ever caught talking with a par- 
ticular member of the opposite 
sex more than once, you were 
almost considered engaged. If 
you miss good old days, 
don't day dream about it. join 
the campus life at CLC. This 
junior high attitude seems to 
have returned to our ever-gossip- 
ing campus. 

"Bui Janet, you must be in 
love with him, you went out with 
him once."

"Myslics have arrived," is the 
cry at C.L.C. The Ouija Board 
craze has hit the students at 
most schools and C.L.C. is no 
exception. Of course, just be- 
tween us, the Ouija is as mysti- 
cal as the person who is using 
it wants it to be. SIvh-h— lets 
keep that between us! After all would the accreditors say 
if they saw what some of we 
C.L.C.'ers do in our spaif lime?! 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to ask you a (jues- 
tion. and if possible I would ap- 
preciate an answer. What has 
happened to the girls at this 
school? I though that boyfriend- 
hunting was bad in high school 
and that when I came to college, 
the girls would grow up and act 
like mature women; women that 
would be intei'ested in something 
besides men. Why can't women 
be women and let the men be 
men and not boyfriends? Why 
can't CLC women be happy just 
being friends with the men, in- 
stead of having the men for boy- 
friends. Is there any chance of 
relief? If there is no chante, 
then CLC should incorporate the 
degree of MRS! 


Steering Committee 

The Central Steering Comniil- 
lee of CLC is composed of the 
four Associated Student Body Of- 
ficers, the Committee Chair- 
men, the Dormitory piesidents, 
and the Class presidents. The 
committee meets every Tuesday 
evening at 7 p.m. At the meet- 
ings individual committee prog- 
ress reports are given, college 
and student problems are dis- 
cussed and acted upon, and 
measures are \oted ui)on. A 
Steering Commille Retreat is 
being idanned for the semester 
break to give this busy group 
lime to relax as well as make 
plans lor the second semester. 

'Pillow Talk' 

If pillows could talk there 
would have been a lot said on the 
nighi of December l?.th, What 
had begun as a harmless chal- 
lenge between two rooms to a 
pillow fight, ended in a free-for- 
all involving almost a majority 
of Beta Halt. It all started when 
one of the residents of Beta, upon 
answering an inquiring knock at 
his door, found an awaiting pil- 
low which a few seconds later 
sent him "back first" to the 
floor. A little stunned but never- 
the-lcss undaunted, he grabbed 
the nearesi i)illow and took after 
the sneak attacker. In what 
seemed to be an incredibly short 

time the whole dorm was 
aroused by the noise. On-lookers, 
bored from their studies, joined 
the happy throng in finding new- 
victims. When their attempts 
failed to decoy anyone elpc out 
of their rooms, the army of pil- 
low swingers retreated to the 
patio where it wasn't long before 
a free-for-all bioke out. Blurred 
pillows and shouting was all that 
could be seen or heard for the 
next five minutes until a truce 
was called on account of sheer 
exhaustion. Fortunately, for all 
involved, there were no casual- 
ties to speak of except for an 
occasional case of hurt feelings. 

Pictured above are some CLC men engaged in an active 

pillow fight. 

Science Club 
Has Speaker 

On January 4, 1962, the Science 
Club had as its first guest speak- 
er, Mr. Robert Wimmer from 
Atomics Intel-national. Mr. Wim- 
mer showed the film "Systems 
for Nuclear Auxiliary Power" 
and then explained it further. On 
January 17. 1962. Dr. Luther K. 
Olmon gave a discussion on the 
Philo.'iophy of Science. Those who 
attciuied these meetings enjoyed 
them very much. 

The Science Club, which was 
formed earlier this school year, 
has three purposes: one, to stim- 
ulate interest in the expanding 
fields of science; two. to inform 
the students of CLC of the many 
advances in science, and three, 
to encourage research on clio.sen 
projects in applied and theoretic- 
al science. In oi'der to fulfil these 
purposes, students have invited 
these speakers to come to the 
meetings. The Science Club wel- 
comes everyone to come to hear 
the speakei^ they will have in 
the future. 

Prof. Dille Honored 

Recently, an honor came to 
one of the faculty here at Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College, and it 
deserves attention. Professor Ro- 
land Dille, English teacher, has 
been appointed to an important 
position by the Executive Com- 
mittee of the National Council of 
Teacheis of English. Professor 
Dille will serve as associate 
chairman of the NCTE Commit- 
tee on Recordings. This impor- 
tant committee is concerned with 
three main tasks: 111 to analyze 
existent recordings of poetry and 
other literary materials, includ- 
ing music: (21 to make and 
eventually to present to the Ex-

college institutions, with the pric- 
es and places where such records 
may be purchased: (3i to recom-

'Now My Little Chickens' 

"And now my little chick- 
ens . , . ". Need anymore be 
said? In the faculty spotlight of 
this edition is CLC's well-known 
pi-ofessor of Religion, the Rever- 
and James Kallas. 

Hailing froni the Windy City of 
Chicago. Reverand Kallas. not 
wishing to bore us with petty 
details, discloses that his entry 
into this old world took pluce 
"an undetermined number of 
yeai-s ago." 

After graduating from high 
school, he attended St. Olaf Col- 
lege in Northfield, Minnesota be- 
tween the years 19^6-50. In the 
course of those four years, he 
was editor of the year book,

last but not least, met his wife 
Darlean. They were married the 
same weekend of his graduation. 

It seems Kevcvanit Kallas's 
graduation was a bit more hectic 
than the usual run-of-the-mill 
type graduations. For some 
strange reason — be the circum- 
stances altered by the graduation 

or his forthcoming marriage — 
our distinguished professor at- 
tempted to shave with toothpaste. 
As a consequence, he came fly- 
ing across the field, with cap and 
gown in hand, and unshaven to 
see his fellow classmates re- 
ceiving their diplomas. 

After graduation R.everand Kal- 
las played professional football 
for the Chicago Cubs. His 
junior high attitude seems to 
career continued until a broken 
shoulder demanded his release. 
(Incidentally, this experience is 
much to CLC's advantage. In his 
'spare time' he can often be 
found deeply engaged in a game 
with some of the members of 
Beta Hall). 

The year before he entered the 
seminary was spent in the busi- 
ness world as office manager of

Reverand Kallas attended Lu- 
ther Theological Seminary in St. 
Paul. Minnesota. After his year 
of internship at the University

ordained in 1955.

The Kallas family spent four 
years in Europe, two in Paris 
and two in England. While in

The call to teach at CLC was 

extended to Reverand Kallas in 
the last part of January in 1961. 
He was then in the middle of Ills 
last year of residence at the Uni- 
versity of Durham in England. 

When asked about his opinion 
of CLC, Reverand Kallas an- 
swered: "This is the most excit- 
ing thing our church has done 
in our generation and perhaps 
longer. At the moment with the 
population e.\plosion in general 
and our Lutheian population ex- 
plosion in particular in Califor- 
nia, the church has had the vi- 
sion and courage to venture forth 
in an undertaking such as this. 

"The word 'pioneer', even 
though overworked, is still ap- 
propriate to signify the coura- 
geous advance into uncertainty 
which the church has always 
shown in troubled times. We as 
a Student Body and a Faculty 
have an enormous privilege and 
obligation wiiich opens up before 
us, and 1 personally am thrilled 
and thankful to be a part of it."

As usual, we are up to our 
necks in construction this month. 
Many new projects have seen 
light over Christmas vacation, 
from the athletic fields to the 
water system. 

The first thing noticed as stu- 
dents were returning to campus 
ivas a sign west of Moorpark 
Road directing buyers to a new 
housing development, College 
Park. Many were also aware of 
the increased building actK-ity 
at the Thousand Oaks High 
School, slated for opening in Sep- 

On campus, grading at the 
Centrum site is in full swing 
since Samuelson Brothers of 
Glendale, Ihe contractors for the 
Centrum, arrived during vaca- 
tion. Thursday, January 11. 
ground was broken for the foun- 
dation of the first building. Con- 
struction has also begun on the 
second of the flood control drains. 

After the completion of the Cen- 
trum ground work early next 
week, the grading equipment 
will move to the north of Olsen 
Road where they will make a 
temporal^ athletic field and 
track to serve the student body 
until the Physical Education 
complex is constructed. The 
equipment shall then excavate a 
one million gallon reservoir on 
Mountclef. Construction will take 
about three months. 

Next year's students will re- 
side in the college motel in the 
centrum instead of two addi- 
tional dorms as previously plan- 
ned. Tlie two wings of the two 
story building will house* around 
200 students. No contract has as 
yet been signed for the motel. 

By August 10, the cafeteria, 
will lie beginning its move to the 
centrum into a spacious, split- 
level building. A wing of the new 
cafeteria will be added as a 
meeting room, which will seat 
about 450 people. 

The library will be moved in- 
to a 190 foot long complex of the 
Centrum shopping center. The 
new location, which will serve 
the college for the following 
three years, is over fifty per 
cent larger than the temporary 
building. The library e,\pects to 
reach 20,000 volumes before 
school resumes in September. 

The book store and college ad- 
ministrative offices will be re- 
located in the centrum. The 
vacated buildings will serve as 
classrooms for the math, sci- 
ence, and art departments. 

Movies Arrive at CLC 

Recently it was announced that 
movies will be shown in the rec- 
reation room of Beta Hall at 
8:00 p m. on Friday and Satur- 
day nights. These movies, for 
which there is no charge except 
a free wilt donation, are open 
to all students. The first films 
shown were "Anything Goes" 
with Mitzi Gaynor, Phil Harris, 
Bing Crosby, Donald O'Connor, 
and Jean Marie and "Cat on a 
Hot Tin Roof" starring Liz Tay- 
lor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives, 
and Jack Carson. 

Thanks to Dale Gasteiger. who 
is in charge of running the mov- 
ies, there is some added enter- 
tainment on the weekends.

Although the old year has gone 
by. some Cylifornia Luthoian ath- 
lelcs arc already making sure 
that our school will be known in 
the year 1962. Chosen for their 
individual performances, several

nals and then went on to place 
fifth in the race. Six girls were 
entered in the final. Wilma Ru-

Bruce Wallen, Steve Gross. Jim 
Huchthauscn, and Dr. Luther 
Schwich, athletic department 
head, represented CLC on the 
Los Angeles Pacific Invitational 
Tournament all-star team. CLC's 
basketball team was entered in 
the tourney during the holidays 
but lost out after losing their 
first game. 80-79. to California 
Baptist, These three members of 
the Lutheran's first string played 
with the rest of the all-tourney 
all-stars in a game with the sei-v- 
ice all-stai-s. Dr. Schwich served 
as coach for the college all-star 
team. It might also be added that 
Bruce Wallen was awarded the 
high point trophy for an individ- 
ual game. Bruce scored 39 points 
against Cal. Baptist in the open- 
ing game. 

CLC vs. Los Angeles Baptist 

California Lutheran College's 
basketball team whipped the Los

January 12. 83-69. The wide open 
cnnlcst showed CIX outscore the 
Gideon's 51-30 in the first half, 
but lost the second half ."{7-32. 

CLC took a long time to get 
rolling in the first half. LA Bap- 
tist stayed within foui- points un- 
til there was about seven minutes 
left in the first period. At this 
point the Lutheran's went on a 
scoring rampage which put I hem 
20 points in front. Bruce Wallen. 
hard-driving guard for the Lu- 
theran's, led this attack with 19 
points in the first half. Jim 
Huchthauscn, forward, helped 
break the game open with 11 
points in the first half also. 

Duiing the second half CLC 

had to slow the game up because 
Stuart Major, center, and Huch- 
thauscn each had four personal 
fouls on them. This was a definite 
weakness in the Lutheran's de- 

CLC's Steve Gross, guard and 
strong outside shooter, started 
hitting to keep CLC in front by 
20. After Major fouled out of the 
game, bad passing and fouling 
began to dominate the game. 

Gross led the Lutheran's for 
the night with a total of 32 points.

Last Week of Our Fabulous 


for His and Her 

Volleyball Results 

Volleyball intramurals got off 
with a grand start as about 72 
students participated in a co- 
recreationa! tournament. The 
playoffs were held before Christ- 
mas vacation. In the double elim- 
ination tourney, team 8. with 
three girls. Louene Weber. Sue 
Thouren, and Marcia Tambert; 
and the boys. Richard Stolee. 
Bill Von Heeder. and Bill Ewing, 
won. Team nine placed a close 
second. Mr. John Kahnert, P.E. 
instructor, said, "There was a 
lot of enthusiasm and I would 
like to again stage something 
similar on a co-recreational 
basis. The turn out was great 
and we had a lot of fun." 

Decathlon Tests 

In anticipation of the end ot 
the semester the men's physical 
education classes have been 
testing their physical condition- 
ing achieved during this term. 
The test has been rightly called 
a Decatbolon. for it consists of 
ten events in which the students 
can earn one thousand points if 
they reach the level of peak 
performance. These ton are: 
Softball throw. Shuttle run, Pull 
ups. Basketball layups. Basket- 
ball free throws. Volleyball serv- 
ing, Volleyball volley. Sixty yard 
sprint. Three minute situps, and 
the One mile run. They are in- 
tended to test the speed, agility, 
and general physical conditioning 

One of the top performances 
seen so far has been the 293 foot 
Softball throw of Richard Stolee, 
CLC sophomore. Activities of 
next semester will include; track, 
swimming, speodball, and soft-

CLC Receives Accreditation 

^"It is a privilege - for _ me. to^ 
announce that we were informed 
on Feb. 22, 1962 that California 
Lutheran College has been ac- 
credited by the Western College 
Association as a senior liberal 
arts college." This message from 
President OrviUe Dahl was re- 
ceived enthusiastically last week 
by everyone connected with the 
college. Dr. Dahl also said, "This 
is a recognition of the education 
program being developed at CLC 
and is a milestone in the history 
of the institution for which all 
assoicated with" the college join 
me in saying we are deeply 

Dr. E. D. Farwell. Dean of the 
College, in explaining what ac- 
creditation will mean for the stu- 
dents, listed six points: 

1. It will be easier for students 
to enter graduate and profes- 

Rev. W. M. Buth 
Addresses LSA 

On Sunday evening, February 
25. the Lutheran Students Associ- 
ation of California Lutheran Col- 
lege sponsored a banquet which 
was held in the dining room of 
the college cafeteria. The meal, 
prepared entirely by students, 
was served l)uffet-style. 

Dennis Weems, president of 
the LSA, served as master of cer- 
emony in introducing Miss Mary 
Ellen Heian, faculty advisor to 
LSA, who, in turn, introduced 
Rev. Wilfred M. Buth. the after- 
dinner speaker. 

Rev. Buth is the Executive Di- 
rector of the Lutheran Student 
Foundation of Southern Califor- 
nia and also the Campus Pastor 
at the University of Southern Cal- 
ifornia. He spoite on the origin 
and purpose of the life and mis- 
sion of the church program of 
the World's Student Christian 
Federation in North America. 
The topic served as a keynote 
address to introduce a series of 
discussions for future LSA semi- 
nar meetings. Rev. Buth stressed 
the need for church people to 
continually evaluate the task and 
mission of the church and their 
individual role in it. He added 
that the LSA must provide fel- 
lowship within wliich students 
can come to know themselves and 
their own indi\^dual tasks and 
missions. He went on to say that 
we need to evaluate our selves 
in terms of our faith and get an 
understanding of what our faith 
really is and that we should see 
ourselves as Christian-witnessing 
students today, the present, and 
not to only decide upon what we 
intend to do upon graduation- 
Miss Heian said that the LSA 
is planning on having other 
speakers, including Pi-ofessors 
Olmon, Oscarson, Sulston, and 
Ulken, to speak at future meet- 
ings on various aspects of Rev. 
Buth's keynote address. She went 
on to say that the LSA is going 
to be very active this semester, 
and she urges all students to at- 
tend the Sunday evening meet- 
ings and participate in the discus- 
sions of New Testament theology. 

Dennis Weems added that these 
meetings prove to be excellent 
times for students to sit down and 
really discuss what they think 
with other students. Weems also 
said that the LSA plans on hav- 
ing more dinner-meetings be 
cause of the success of this, theii 

Speech Contest 

Four CLC students will take 
part in the speech contest at 
Long Beach State College this 
Friday and Saturday. Gary Berg

tu, and Marianne Wilson in oral 
interpretation and pei-suasive. 

sional schools. Credits from CLC 
transferred to another institution 
will be acceptable upon entrance 
rather than after a semester at 
the institution. 

2. A degree received from CLC 
ttlU have more prestige for stu- 
dents seeking employment upon 

3. It will be easier for CLC 
to establish professional pro- 
rgams in education, nursing, etc. 

4. Federal grants will be avail- 
able to establish new laboratory 
facilities. For example, funds for 
language laboratories, science 
equipment and some social sci- 
ence programs. Such grants are 
also available for assisting stu- 
dents and faculty in research and 
study programs. 

5. Loans will become available 
for construction of dormitories 
and other buildings. 

6. Eligibility for more scholar- 
ships will be reali2ed by pro- 
spective CLC students, especially 
California Scholarship Federation 
members who will now be eli- 
gible for full tuition scholarships 
to CLC. 

It seems quite remarkable that 
a college only one semester in 
operation could become accredit- 
ed so soon. Mr. Paul Karlstrom, 
CLC's Director of Pubhc Rela- 

tions, in answering the question 
"How, so soon?" has listed four 

1. Because of the extreme de- 
tailed creative work led by Dr. 
Dahl in the master planning for 
campus and cun'iculum. 

2. Because of our excellent fa- 
culty who had faith to risk their 
professional standings in a prom- 
ising but un-proven adventure. 

3. Because of an exceptional 
venturing student body who were 
willing to take the chance to 
make accreditation possible. 

4. Because of the exceptional 
record and high standings of oth- 
er Lutheran Colleges and the 
training of faculty members in 
the tradition and dedication of 
Christian higher education. 

Dr. Farwell expressed two ad- 
ditional reasons: It came about 
also "through the determination 
of Lutheran congregations in the 
Southwest to establish a Christian 
liberal arts college with the high- 
est academic standard" and 
"tiirough the cooperation of other 
Lutheran colleges and national 
Lutheran church bodies to sup- 
port this college." 

Although accreditation seemed 
to come quickly, plans for it 
were begun long ago. According 

to Dr. Farwell, initial contacts 
were made two years before the 
college, with leadership of the 
Western College Association to 
indicate CLC's desire to be ac- 
credited by the association at the 
earliest possible date. That was 
the first step towards accredita- 
tion. The second was a meeting 
held with Dr. Mitchell Briggs, 
Executive Secretary of the 
W.C.A.. and Dean Franklin P. 
Rolfe of UCLA, Chairman of the 
Commission on Membership and 
Standards, in April 1961 to make 
a formal request for an ecU*ly ac- 
creditation visit. At this meeting 
Dr. Briggs informed CLC of the 
necessaiy procedures for accred- 
itation. The third step was the 
actual request made to the 
W.C.A. for such a visit, and the 
fourth was the preliminary visit 
made by Dr. Briggs and Dean 
Rolfe to the CLC campus, Sep- 
tember 27, 1961, (ten days after 
the opening of school). They were 
impressed and agreed to a for- 
mal request to the fall meeting 
of the association for a formal 
visit by an accreditation team 
in January, 1962. 

The fifth step was the prepara- 
tion of the accreditation schedule 
by Drs. Dahl, Farwell, and Hage 
and a faculty committee com- 

A welcome reception of CLC students awaited (left to right) Professor R. V. Peel, Presi- 
dent Orville DanI, Dean E. D. Farwell, and Dean Robert S. Hage when they returned 

with the good news of "CLC received accreditation." 

California Lutlieran College Carnival 

The approaching day of March 
24 wall not pass into time as 
simply another day. On this day, 
merriment and laughter will cli- 
max the weeks of hard work 
which has been put into the first 
California Lutheran College CAR- 
NIVAL ever held. Much effort is 
being put forth in preparing the 
festivities which will be held on 
the area directly west and south- 
west of the basketball courts. 

George "Inx" Engdahl, gener- 
al chairman of the carnival, re- 
vealed several facets of the pro- 
gram for the day, although much 
is being kept as a surprise. One 
of the points revealed was the 
large scope of the carnival. The 
festivities will not be limited to 
the student body as plans have 
been made to invite all the 
church youth leagues in the near- 
by area and Los Angeles to come 
and participate. Five hours of 
fun have been planned for all, 
beginning at one o'clock in the 
afternoon. As of now, tentative 
plans have been made to in- 
vite the community of Thou- 
sand Oaks to share in the fun. 
If this action is taken, then the 
carnival will run from one 

o'clock until about ten that eve- 

Carnival games are being kept 
a secret, but the word is that 
they're loads of fun and the priz- 
es are really sharp. No carnival 
is complete witliout a good sup- 
ply of food and drink, and Bill 
Ewing of the refreshment commit- 
tee, says there will be plenty of 
both. Hot dogs, soft drinks, pop- 
corn, and other goodies will be 
available to all at a slight 
charge. The tickets for the dif- 
ferent items are being prepared 
in books of ten; the books will 
be nominal in cost. As far as 
side shows, Ben Fredericks men- 
tioned that there was going to be 
a surprise fortune teller. Coming 
close to mid-term exams, this 
soothesayer will probably be 

Books Arrive 

It has recently been announced 
that the long overdue books The 
Way of All Flesh by Samuel But- 
ler and The Brothers Karamazov 
by Fyodor Dostoyevsky have fi- 
nally arrived in tlie college book- 
store. Both books are required 
for reading in Freshman English 
II classes. 

forecasting good fortune for those 
who visit the fortune teller. Ben 
also said that there would even 
be a wild man, but the other 
shows will remain a mystery. 
Tentatively on the schedule is an 
act from Jungleland which would 
feature several highly-trained an- 
imals. Also, in the side show sec- 
tion, the sophomores plan to 
sponsor a funhouse which will 
be very unique. 

Another part of the Carnival 
will be the exhibits and displays. 
Larry Hockenberry, Exhibits 
Committee Chairman, said that 
it is hoped that each department 
and the special interest clubs will 
each have an entry. Tentative 
plans also call for individuals to 
be able to participate. Students 
could exhibit their coin collec- 
tions, paintings, drawing, handi- 
craft, photographic work, and 
any other interesting displays as 

they might have.

activities, so let's really support

from Whittier College, and Dr. 
Spelman from Redlands College. 
And the final step was the of- 
ficial notification by Dr. Briggs 
of CLC's membership in the 
Western College Association, Feb- 
ruary 22, 1962. 

Public Opinion 
Poll Taken 

Students and faculty members 
were asked "What was your first 
reaction when you found out we 
were accredited?" Here are some 
of the replies: 

Prof. Roland Dille 

"I was really very happy, but 
there is still much work to be 
done. It's the kind of encourage- 
ment we need to cope with prob- 
lems which may arise." 

Tim Storvick 

"My first reaction was one of 
joy, happiness, and surprise. I 
didn't think we would get it this 
Jeff Votava 

"I thought it was real nice. 
We deserve a celebration." 

Marcla Kretehmar 

"I was really excited I had 
high hopes of CLC receiving ac- 
creditation, but I was still sur- 
prised and thrilled. I realize how 
much this means to the college. 

Because of the-^-accrwIitation, 

many of my friends will be com- 
ing out here next year." 

Carolyn Cottom 

"This will mean that a lot of 
students will be able to come 
back to CLC next year, and it 
will insure our getting an ex- 
cellent quality of students in com- 
ing years." 

Gordon Nilson 

"My first reaction was that we 
ought to call a holiday, but it 
already was one (Washington's 
Birthday), so we couldn't!" 
Norm Knoll 

"I didn't believe it! I thought 
it was a joke." 

Skip Anderson 

"I thought it was just a ru- 

Chuck Pederson 

"It made me very glad that 
I came to CLC, and I am glad 
that I am part of the student 
body that made it possible." 

Tom Olsen 

Before this year I never un- 
derstood what ' 'accreditation' ' 
meant, mainly because of my 
idealogical way of thinldng. But 
now I fully realize and under- 
stand what this means to me as 
a student of this college, and I 
am thoroughly excited and proud 
over the progress of this educa- 
tional institution. 

Richard Amrhein: 

"I wasn't suprised. I was con- 
fident that, with such devoted 
leadership from Dr. Dahl, such 
an outstanding faculty, and such 
a great student body, I was nev- m 
er worried that we might not 
receive accreditation."

Alpha Hall Showboat For Moms 

Approximately eighty-five mo- 
thers attended CLC's first annual 
Mother-Daughter Weekend, which 
was held Saturday and Sunday, 
February 24th ind 25th. Sybil 
Home was chairman of the com- 
mittee which planned the week- 

When the mothers arrived on 
Saturday, their cars were parked 
by some of the members of Beta 
Hall, and they were escorted to 
the "Alpha Hall Showboat" along 
a tree lined, red carpeted walk 
mth some of the Beta Hallites 
carrying umbrellas as protection 
against the inevitable rain. 

The day officially began with 
a program presented in the foyer 
of the women's dorm, which had 
been decorated as the deck of 
a showboat. Brenda Priest, mas- 
ter of ceremonies, first intro- 
duced the captain of the show- 
boat. Miss Heian. and presented- 
her with a corsage, which Miss 
Heian presented to her future 
mother-in-law. The program then 
began with a Can Can done by 
Karolyn Isaacson, Peggie Mc- 
Clintock. Mary Lou Melick. Lou 
Ellen Sampson, Linda Minah, 
Nancy Westberg. Penny Myhre. 
and Sonja Hayden. Then Mary 

Carol Dahl leads CLC's madrigal group in singing for fh( 
mothers during the festive "Showboat" presentation. 

ASB Special Election 

On February the sixteenth a 
special election was held by the 
Associated Student Body in or- 
der to fill the vacated seats of 
the past president and vice-pres- 
ident. Under the direction of 
Dean Robert Hage. Anne Jolley. 
(Elections Commissioner) ar- 
ranged the proceedings by which 
the candidates were to follow. 
Petitions were circulated and the 
necessary signatures received. 
Candidates (or president were 
Paul Carlson and Bill Ewing; for 
vice-president Ken Culp. Roger 
Anderson, and John Lundblad; 
and for treasurer, Otis Kline. 

The competition was very keen 
for we had very fine candidates 
seeking the respective offices. 
During the Student Assembly of 
February 15th, the candidates 

gave their campaign speeches. 

Each campaigned vigorously by 

word of mouth. A( 6:30 on the 

16th, the results were known. The 

new officers, as announced, were: 

Paul Carlson, A.S.B. President: 

Ken Culp. A.S.B. Vice-president; 

and Otis Kline. A.S.B. Treasurer. 

President Paul Carlson stated 

that the new officers wilt work 

together toward the strengthening 

of the student body organization. 

Vice-president Ken Culp added 

that the most imoprtant work 
ahead is the radification of the 
proposed constitution. 

The thanks of the whole stu- 
dent body should be given to 
Anne Jolley. the Elections Com- 
mittee, and their advisor Dean 
Hage for the work they did in 
organizing the election. 

Superior leadership is to be expected from our new ASB 
officers: Otis Kline, treasurer; Ken Culp, vice president; 
Carolyn Cottom, secretary; and Paul Carlson, president. 

Sievers, Judy Jacobson and Kar- 
en Nystrom sang, followed by 
Miriam Bloomquist singing "The 
Children All Are Sleeping" and 
"Can't Help Loving That Man." 
Next on the program came the 
"Deck Hands." Paul Christ. Ka- 
thy Jo Smith, Sue Thouren. Lou- 
ene Weber, Janet Nordmeyer, 
and Marcia Tambert doing a 
skit. Following this was a pan- 
tomine by Pamela Waites and 
Sandra Hallaman. The Madrigals 
directed by Carole Dahl then 
sang "Sing We and Chant It". 
"Lullaby Song." and "Sleigh 
Ride." TTiis group is composed of 
Linda Gulsrud. Kim Bodding, 
Marcia Peterson. Karen Aasen, 
Miriam Bloomquist, Joan Fleish- 

Honors Seminar 

Perhaps the most deeply excit- 
ing event to happen recently at 
CLC was the initiation of the 
school's first Honors Seminar on 
Friday night. February 16. Dr. 
E. D. Farwell, Dean of the Col- 
lege, introduced the Seminar by 
explaining its organization and 
purpose. He said that the Semi- 
nar would provide both the select- 
ed students and the faculty an 
opportunity to coiTelate the var- 
ious disciplines by their joint ef- 
fort to recognize, define, and 
study "The Crisis of Western 
Man" — the general theme of the 

Mr. Roland Dille, Associate 
Professor of English, then began 
the series of Friday night lec- 
tures. The major part of his dis- 
cussion concerned the crisis as 
illustrated and defined by T. S. 
Eliot in his long poem "The 
Wasteland." Mr. Dille considers 
this to be the greatest poem of 
the modern age — not necessar- 
ily the best, but the greatest be- 
cause of its influence and impact, 
and because it sums up the atti- 
tude of modern world intellects. 

To Eliot, the world is no long- 
er filled with the beauty of na- 
ture but with the ugliness of 
cities. The world had lost its 
beauty because man has lost the 
meaning of life. "The Wasteland" 
is a cry of desolation — a regret 
for the revelation which could 
make life meaningful. Man seems 
to have destroyed his gods. 
Eliot's conclusion in "The Waste- 
land", as interpreted by Mr. 
Dille. is that if there is a mean- 
ing to life it can only be found 
through a return to religion — 
probably for Western man. Chris- 
tianity. Eliot, at this point in his 
writing is not at all certain of 
any truth in Christianity, but he 
stands wishing to believe. 

A general discussion led by pre- 
designated members of the Semi- 
nar followed Mr. Dille's presen- 
tation. These members were Mr. 
Arthur Moorefield. the Rev. 
James Kallas. Dr. J. Wolfgang 
Wcilgart, and students Mary Ann 
Wilson, Jim Frahm. and John 
Wold. Dr. Weilgart added further 
interest to the discussion as he 
compared the "Dissociation of 
Sensibilities" in Eliot's poetry 
with the disassociation of cate- 
gories in Picasso's painting, and 
stated that their personal chaos 
enabled them to echo the chaos 
of the world. 

The discussion also included 
questions as to the justification 
of Eliot's views of the world and 
his methods of expression. The 
final comment of the evening — 
seemingly an appropriate one — 
was made by Dr. Helmut Haeus- 
sler. He stated, in essence, that 
we are not justified in our hasty 
criticisms of Eliot because our 
present knowledge is only very

The back room of the cafeteria 
was reserved for mothers and 

daughters for dinner on Saturday. 
The tables were set with reH and 
white checked cloths and had 
bouquets of carnations and snap- 
dragons for centerpieces. Follow- 
ing dinner many of the mothers 
and daughters went to the bas- 
ketball game. Devotions were 
held in the foyer following the 
game at which time Rev. Kallas 
and Mrs. Powers spoke. The day 
was climaxed with an engage- 
ment party at which time Judy 
Wahl announced her engagement. 

Many of the mothers spent the 
night with their daughters and 
left after dinner on Sunday.

opening act in the "Showboat" spectacular. 

Military Presentation 

A Military Obligation Presenta- 
tion was given in Beta Hall on 
February 21 for the male stu- 
dents. Officers from the Air 
Force. Marines, and Navy landed 
that afternoon in a helicopter on 
the temporary athletic field. 

The officers in attendance 
were: Chaplain Thomas S. Sev- 
erston. U.S.N., Maiine Corps Air 
Facility. Santa Ana, Califoi-nia; 
Colonel E. E. Anderson, Com- 
manding Officer. Marine Air 
Group 36. Santa Ana, California; 
Lt. Commander Henry S. Dor- 
man, U.S.N. Training Corps. San- 
ta Ana, California: Captain 
James L. McManaway, U.S.M.C, 
Officer Selection Officer. Los An- 
geles; and Tech. Sergeant Hari-y 
Sontag. U.S.A.F.. Recruiting Offi- 
cer. Oxnard. California. 

Chaplain Severtson. who has n 

son attending CLC. was the or- 
ganizer of the program. The pur- 
pose of the program was "to ac- 
quaint the college student with 
the opportunities available in the 
various branches of the military 
to fulfill their military obligation 
in a manner to accomodate their 
own best interests and the best 
interests of the nation for edu- 
cated men." Severtson went on 
to say. "As a chaplain. I have 
been asked to counsel in many 
situations where a lack of know- 
ledge and planning has created 
great hardship on young men and 
placed them in a position not to 
their best use and maximum ben- 
efit to their countiy." 

After the discussion and ques- 
tion-answer period of the presen- 
tation, various literature was dis- 
tributed to the students. 

Pictured above, from left, are Dean Farwell, Lt. Com- 
mander Dorman, Dr. Hage, Tech. Sergeant Sontag,

The Echo Chamber Happy Talk Letters to the Editor 

A Colleqe Built on Faith ... f, ,. Dear Editor, . second both S.T.H and 

A College B 

Records are meant to be brok- 
en, but California Lutheran Col- 
lege has done more than just 
smashed a record; it has set a 
precedent unheard of before in 
receiving accreditation so soon. 

How did it come about? It took 
yeai-s of planning to build this 
college, it took strong-willed men 
and women to lead in the devel- 
opment of these plans through 
the years, it took gifts fi-om thou- 
sands of individuals to give the 
college the needed assets, and it 
took students with a lust for ad- 
venture to make it a college. 
Yet, in all of the things mentioned 
above, one facet must stand out 
in retrospect and relation to the 

others: it took faith; faith to 
start on such a great project; 
faith to keep going when seem- 
ingly unsurmountable crisis 
arose; faith for men and women 
to leave secure, high-paying jobs 
to come here and teach; faith to 
support the college financially; 
and faith for students to attend 
the fledgling school with no guar- 
antee whatsoever in education. 
Faith enters into every aspect of 
California Lutheran College. It is 
a college that was built on faith, 
and today CLC is an accredited 
college where students and facul- 
ty both profess and have faith 
in the strongest power there ever 
was and is.

I have been told that every- 
thing on the campus of Califor- 
nia Lutheran College has a defi- 
nite purpose. Up until a few days 
ago I would have agreed with 
this statement, but now, due to 
an accident, I have found this 
statement a falsity. 

A few nights ago, when I was 
taking my nightly sprint, I no- 
ticed a flight of steps. Thinking 
this would give me a short-cut 
back to the dorm, I charged up 
them. I must say I was rather 
surprised when I found myself 
standing in ankle deep mud. As 
if this in itself were not enough, 
I turned to find I was further 
away from my destination than 
I had been before. 

1 always have been under the 
impression that steps usually 
have a walk with them and that 
they usually lead somewhere. In 
this case, my assumption proved 

Now I have, at last, found 
something on this campus that 
has absolutely no purpose. To al- 
ter this condition may I suggest 
that our college put an ad in the 
local paper under the lonely 
hearts column: "steps without 
walk seeking partner." 

Zane's Trace 

By Zane 

The floods have subsided and 
the dove has returned with an 
olive branch. After three con- 
tinuous weeks of rain, the Conejo 
Valley seems to have finally 
dried out enough for construction 
to resume on many civic and 
college projects. 

Two of the four lanes of the 
new Moorpark Road between Ol- 
sen Road and U.S. highway 101 
should be completed by mid- 
Aprii. Moorpark Road is under- 
going a period of widening and 
leveling from its present tumu- 
lous condition. An underpass is 
being constructed at U.S. 101 to 
reduce the traffic situation there. 

Thousand Oaks High School is 
still progressing at a steady rate. 
Next year our basketball team 
will be using their gymnasium 
for practice and for home games. 

Centrum construction has re- 
sumed and activity there seems 
to indicate that, in spite of the 
loss of time during the prolonged 
rainy period, consti'uction dead- 
lines will be met. 

New lights now illuminate the 
walks between the doims and 
First Street, and drain spouts 
have been added to the balconies 
of the two dorms to catch the 
run-off fi'om future rains. 

I wonder if we are eligible to 
receive Federal aid for drain 
spouts since Ventura County was 
called a disaster area by Gover- 
nor Brown?

Dear Editor, 

In the previous two issues of 
the Mountclef Echo students have 
expressed their views concerning 
the relationships between men 
and women students on campus. 

It is my personal opinion that 
this is a matter to be considered 
and decided by each individual 
.student without being influenced 
by outside opinion other than per- 
sonal experience. 

However, upon reading the let- 
ters in the last issue (vol. 1. no. 
6), two questions were raised in 
my mind. 

First, S.T.H. refers to J.J. as 
"hiding behind a cloak of anoni- 
mity," infering that J.J. is too 
frightened by possible reprisals 
to back up comments with a full 
name. However, it is to be no- 
ticed that S.T.H. also refuses to 
have a full name printed. Could 
it be that S.T.H. developed a 
similar fear of possible reprisals, 
a fear strong enough to force a 
compromise with principles? 

Second, both S.T.H. and S.L.L. 
infer that both J.J. and C.L. are 
residents of Beta Hall. Upon a 
comprehensive examination of 
the letters of J.J. and C.L., I am 
unable to decide by which sex 
either of the letters was written. 
Each letter holds opinions that 
I have heard expressed by both 
sexes. Perhaps S.T.H. and S.L.L. 
are more adept than I am in 
determining the sex of an indi- 
vidual by means of the person's 

Should not we, before attacking 
others for a stand taken on a 
particular issue, first stop and 
carefully decide the exact differ- 
ences between that person's stand 
and our own? 

Should not we guard against in- 
ferring too much when in the 
process of dismembering another 
person's stand, lest we find that 
we are tearing apart our own 
position and principles?

. . . Mr. Robert Lagomarsino, our 
State Senator from Ojai who 
gave a talk to the Student Body 
on the history of Ventura Coun- 
ty; past, present and future? He 
concluded his talk with comments 
on the value of having a religious 
institution in the area and 
throughout the country. It is his 
wish that California Lutheran 
College and he. in his new job 
as Senator, would giow and ma-

of the Missoui'i Synod church in 
Simi? He urged the captivated 
students not to get so busy with 
their academic life so as to rule 
out their daily-personal devo- 


tions. He said that many of the 
student body are attracted to a 
Christian school, such as CLC. 
because of the moral, social and 
religious centered environment.

CLC Literary Review 

By Terry Molnar personality is split at his hands 

For those of you who still hang 
on to your childhood fantasies of 
the glamom- of Hollywood and 
read with intense interest what 
Professor Roland Dille has de- 
scribed as our "cultural column- 
ist," Hedda Hopper . , . for you 
people, I would issue a warning 
to avoid The Day of the Locust 
by Nathanael West as if it were 
a plague. For the few brave 
souls who delight in satirical hu- 
mor at its finest and wish to hear 
of the saga of those who "came 
to California to die," I would 
recommend this work highly. 

Outstanding in the book are the 
characters, who are consciously 
engaged in a struggle but uncon- 
sciously trapped and who are 
tragic, ironic, and truly comic. 
There is Homer Simpson, a book- 
keeper from the Mid-west, in 
California for his health, whose 

and who is a sucker of the all- 
day variety. There is Harry 
Greener, a broken-do\vn, old bur- 
lesque comedian, now selling sil- 
verware polish door-to-door, con- 
demned to perform his routine 
before an audience of impatient 
housewives. There is "Honest 
Abe" Kuschich. a book-keeper- 
dwarf with a giant inferiority 

Outstanding also are the situa- 
tions: the "typical" Hollywood 
party thrown by a successful 
screen writer (one of the only 
successful characters of the book) 
who plants a rubber replica of 
a dead horse in his pool, the un- 
evenly matched cock-fight, and 
an uncontrolled riot. 

These characters and situations 
and the tragic subject matter set 
this book apart as a genuinely 
enjoyable book.

Professor Vernon R. Degner 

Mr. Vernon R. Degner, profes- 
sor of Science and Mathematics, 
comes to California Lutheran Col- 
lege on a leave of absence from 
Rocketdyne, where he was Senior 
F*roject Engineer. Mr. Degner 
received his B.M.E, from Mar- 
quette University in 1949. Then, 
having gone to work for Westing- 
house in Pittsburgh, in 1950 he 
was chosen by the company along 
with fourteen others to attend 
postgraduate classes at Pitts- 
burgh University. He furthered 
his education still at the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology, 
where he received his Masters 
in 1951. After the completion of 
this schooling he went back to 
Westinghouse as a research en- 
gineer doing applied research in 
fields of elasticity and plasticity 
of metals at high temperatures. 

In 1953, Mr. Degner brought 
his family to California. He ini- 
tially specialized in rocket propul- 
sion in fields of Aerothermody- 
namics and Heat Transfer at 
Rocketdyne. Later, as Senior Pro- 
ject Engineer of AdvEinced Stud- 
ies, he was responsible for the 
analysis and evaluation of new 
propulsion devices for future 
space missions. He worked pro- 
pulsion problems pertinent to the 
Atlas, Thor. Jupiter. F 1. Nomad, 
and the J 2 projects, For the F 1, 
Nomad and the J 2 projects he 
directed the advanced analysis 
leading to the engine definition. 

Mr. Degner's teaching exper- 
ience includes positions at the 

Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology, the Carnegie Institute of 
Technology and the University of 
California at Los Angeles, where 
he taught dynamics and thermo- 
dynamics, thermodynamics and 
rocket engine theory, respective- 

Mr. Degner met his wife Shir- 
ly at a Walter League Camp in 
Wisconsin, when they were in 
high school. They were married 
in Milwaukee shortly after Mr. 
Degner's return from service in 
the Second World War. He served 
in the 86th infantry division, see- 
ing action in the European cam- 
paigns. The other members of 

the Degner family include: Mi- 
chael (12), Kurt (9), Mark (7), 
Keith (4), and Katrina (5 

Mr. Degner and his family 
moved to Thousand Oaks in April 
of 1960. Here he "found consid- 
erable interest in contributing to 
the early phase of this project." 
He feels very proud and finds 
satisfaction in "being a part of 
this new and exciting adventure 
of bringing a college into being."

CLC Students 
Begin Teaching 

With the words "Buenos dias, 
nines y nlnas," six of CLC's 
Spanish students began teaching 
Spanish February 20 in Walnut 
and Timber Elementary Schools 
in the fourth through the fifth 

The first day of these unique 
classes marked the culmination 
of several months of planning and 
anticipation on the part of the 
faculty of the Timber School Dis- 
trict, Miss Rhoda Dybvig of 
CLC's Language Department, and 
Spanish teachers Louise Louns- 
bury, Lupe Martinez. Barbara 
Myers. Judy Pitkin. Brenda 
Priest, and Carol Tompson. Each 
Tuesday and Thursday until 
the end of the semester, the Span- 
ish teachers will hold twenty- 
minute lessons which are design- 
ed to give the children a basic 
knowledge of the Spanish lan- 
guage. On the following days, 
the regular classroom teacher 
will reinforce the previous lesson 
with tape recordings and records. 

Timber School District initiated 
this program in its schools be- 
cause of the marked ability of 
younger children to imitate 
sounds and because of the influ- 
ence of Spain and Mexico in the 
histoi-y of California. 

Dr. Farwell Speaks 
to Science Club 

Sigma Rho Chi, the Science 
Qub, held its first meeting of the 
spring semester on February 14, 
1%2. The guest speaker. Dr. E. 
D. Farwell, spoke on Genetics. 
It was considered one of the best 
programs this year by all who 

One of the purposes of the Sig- 
ma Rho Chi is to encourage re- 
search on chosen projects in ap- 
plies and theoretical science. In 
order to do this the club decided 
to have two Interest Groups, Bio- 
logical Science and Physical Sci- 
ence. At the next meeting, on 
March 14, the club would like to 
organize its Interest Groups. Any- 
one who would like to do individ- 
ual or group research is invited 
to attend. With what little time 
is left these projects should be 
started as soon as possible to 
gain the help offered by the sci- 
ence and math faculty members.

Cage Season Closes 

by Woody Wilk 

While riding to CamariUo high 
school for our game with Point 
Mugu, one of the boys made a 
statement that made our minds 
return to the fall. "It seems like 
yesterday that we were on our 
way up here for the first time, 
Coach." Wistfully, Dr. Schwich 
replied, "You're right, very 
right." That day (October 1st) 
we tearfully left the running and 
weights solely to Mr. Kahn- 
ert's cross-counti-y squad. The 
latter is just humor, we are very 
grateful for the conditioning we 
were put through and the results 
that came of this. 

We say "wistfully' above be- 
cause many things have hap- 
pened to the team and their 
coach. Together they have shared 
triumphs, heartaches and humor. 
Let us turn back to the high- 
lights of the season. 

November 21st, found the Lutes 
at Azusa College, located in Azu- 
sa, sti-angely enough. All con- 
cerned, were confident but un- 
tried in the ranks of college play, 
excluding Bruce Wahlin. Bruce 
was a mainstay for Bethany's 
"fighting Lutes" as a freshman 
last year. Having won seventeen 
straight over a period of two 
seasons. Azusa took chtuge of 
the contest and CLC came out 
on the short end of a 53 to 75 
score. A humorous note to this 
game was added by Al Howe. It 
seems Azusa is one of Al's fre- 
quent stops. Craig Beery, our 
chauffeur, had to ask Al fi-equent- 
ly about directions. This is where 
the now famous "you're doin 
fine", originated. 

Returning home. Biola waxed 
us by an eighteen point spread, 
79 to 61. This "waxing" probably 
polished us up for the next game 
as we turned back the talented 
Chapman Frosh 73-70. Wahlin 
icing the game with two free- 
throws in the last seconds. 

We then journey to Pepperdine 
College in Los Angeles to play 
the Wave's frosh. We were im- 
mediately introduced to a pro- 
type basketball — receiving el- 
bow smashes and "hips" under 
the bucket. The rugged frosh 
wound up Bristol stomping us 
75 to 39. You are now probably 

were. Well, the only thing they 
saw that night were the dollar 
signs after getting their pay- 

The point of the compass now 
turns east for more humor, but 
no victories. Playing two repu- 
table frosh teams of the Southern 
California area. Pomona and 
Redlands, in that order, CLC lost 
two close ones, 72-62 and 52-53, 
respectively at Redlands, 
after a trip from CLC of 102 
miles, we kept the Bulldog's 
frosh on the run during the first 
half. Then in the second half, the 
officials put us on the run with 
poor calls. A ridiculous technical 
foul cost us the game. It seems 
statician Karsten Lundring, made 
a derrogatory sound when the 
opponent was in the process of 
"choking a free throw. 
"TWEET!" "Technical foul on 
the bench," said the referee. 
Needless to say, the opponent 
made the free throw. Don't wor- 
ry about it, Karst, we still love 

At home the next night, we 
gave the student body our Christ- 
mas present, a victory over Rio 
Hondo, brining our record to 
3 and 5. Vacation came for Steve 
Gross, Jerry Bell, Stu Major, 
Jim Huchtausen, and Bruce Wah- 
lin. Alt earned a needed rest. 

The new year started with 
the LA Pacific Tourney and a 
heartbreaking loss to California 
Baptist College, 79 to 80. The 
Lutes out-played everybody that 
night, except the officials. 

Bouncing back. CLC picked up 
two easy victories over Rio Hon- 
do and LA Baptist. We then 
traveled west and played the 
Point Mugu Naval Base. They 
sank us, but that Navy chow was 
the greatest! 

Up to now this story has had 
everything but drama — you've 
got it now! The big one! The win- 
ners of their own tournament, 
LA Pacific College, came to play. 
We went to beat them, and beat 
them we did, and it was the 
greatest game CLC's hoopsters 
played all season Gross hit from 
outside, Wahlin drove in for lay- 
ups. Huck's hook shot was on 
target, Major and Bell dominated 
the boards, and Dr. Schuich's 

wondering where the officialspre-game oratory was to the 

Bowling Club 

With the first semester of 
bowling already in the score 
books, the CLC Tuesday League 
and the CLC Thursday League 
have reorganized into one league, 
which will bowl on Tuesday eve- 
nings at 6:45. The reorganization 
was necessary due to attendance 
problems. Semester drop-outs and 
lack of interest seemed to be the 
main factors. 

To stimulate interest, the 
league will give trophies for both 
scratch and handicap scores. In 
this way, you don't have to be 
the most exceptional bowler in 
or-der to win a trophy. The cate- 
gories in which trophies will be 
given are the men and women's 
high game and series, and first 
place. Other trophies will be giv- 


en but the categories in which 
they will be given have not been 

The first semester provided 
good bowling fun for all who par- 
ticipated, and also produced these 
results: In the Tuesday league, 
the Pinbusters won 1st place, and 
in the Thursday league. Team 
No. 6 won 1st place. Both teams 
were captained by Nels Olsen. 
The other members of the Pin- 
busters were Jon Voss, Linda 
Berry .and Pat Gallagher; the 
other members of Team No. 6 
were Warren Taylor. Gary Cock- 
rell. and Mike Robertson. 

The NEW CLC Bowling League 
welcomes all bowling enthusiasts 
to participate. of 

point: "Get 'em!" 

After reaching our high point, 
finals and semester break hit us 
all at once. Wahlin transferred, 
and Gross, Bell, and Gregg 
Schmidt (just back with the doc- 
tor's OK) were declared scholas- 
tically ineligible. When you lose 
three starters, it just isn't the 
same. We didn't give up! Neces- 
sary adjustments were made and 
the team hung together. Since the 
second semester, our record 
hasn't been as flossy as the 
first's (3-5, and 9-12 on the sea- 

Going east, west, north or 
south, our basketball team never 
lost confidence in themselves. 
Speaking for myself and twelve 
other guys, we are proud to have 
served you, CLC. 

Track & Field 

By Tom Olsen 

Those interested in competing 
in track events this year include: 
Russel Flora. Roger Anderson, 
Jerry Liebersbach, Tom Eckland, 
Jim Hollowed, Chuck Coon and 
Richard Stollee. Russel Flora and 
Roger Anderson will be compet- 
ing in the distance events. Rus- 
sel will run the one and two mile 
events and mile relay; and Roger 
will run the 880 and mile relay. 
The sprinters include Jerry Lie- 
bersbach, Tom Eckland, and Jim 
Hollowed. Jerry will compete in 
the 440 yard dash and the mile 
relay. Tom will sprint along with 
teammate Jim in the 100 and 
220 yard dashes. Chuck Coon and 
Richard Stollee will be putting 
the shot and throwing the discus 
and javalin. 

Practicing has been very diffi- 
cult for the team, for they have 
incurred handicaps of all kinds! 
One has been lack of equipment 
for the field events, and another 
has been the lack of a track. The 
tough pounding that the men 
have taken from the asphalt has 
resulted in many of the team 
having received severe muscle 
pains. These difficulties haven't 
been excuses for loafing for the 
team has worked just as hard 
as if they had the facilities to 

Another disappointment has 
been the lack of interest that has 
been displayed! As you can see 
there are only seven men taking 
part in the sport. In order to 
succeed in track you have to 
have the desire to compete. The 
psychological effect is of great 
importance to a runner for if he 
doesn't feel fit or up to the race, 
it's lilte knowing you are going 
to lose before you even start. 
Unfortunately track is a minor 
sport. But in a few years (with 
a few more students) we should 
have a larger showing. 

The deepest thanks should be 
given for the tremendous effort 
and time that Mr. John Kahnert 
has shown in working with stu- 
dents wishing to compete in 
track! On behalf of the Mount- 
clef Echo, the sports writers wish 
to thank Mr. Kahnert and wish 
to him and the team the best, 
a gi-eat season! 

Road trips with the basketball 
team always turn out to be a lot 
of fun no matter who or what 
supplies the laughter or pranks. 
.Sometimes it's the LA traffic, 
where we go. Al Howe, or even 
how we play the game that turns 
out to be funny. On February 20. 
Ihc team made a trip to South- 
ern California College and a 
g.'sme with the Vanguards at the 
Orange County Fair grounds 
where this "flea circus" plays 
their games, I knew something 
was going to be wrong because 
everything started when we had 
lo go wake up Paul Christ so 
he could come and play at the 
game. As usual we hit the inter- 
change around five o'clock which 
always makes things more rosey 
than Christmas time. Besides the 
interchange we had to use the 
Santa Ana freeway which at this 
time looks like a Japanese de- 
partment store at the time of 
Budah's birthday. Things got fun- 
ny when we got our directions 
mixed up and arrived at the fair 
grounds only twenty minutes be- 
fore scheduled game time. The 
only trouble was that nobody was 
at the gj-m. There wasn't a light 
on and a custodian couldn't be 
found anywhere. Finally at eight 
o'clock the home team anived 
and let us in. They were going to 
charge us admission but decided 
their scholarship fund could hack 
letting 12 basketball players in 
to play their team. We all almost 
fell over at the sight of the gym, 
what a riot! One basket was be- 
ing held up by a piece of cord 
and the other was merely hang- 

By George Engdahl 

ing there by a couple of nails. 
Tiien things started popping when 
they showed us to the dressing 
room. The temperature was sub- 
zero and there wasn't a locker 
to be found. Here was a basket- 
ball team taking off one article 
of clothing at a time only to be 
able to replace it with a skimpy 
basketball uniform in this arctic 
temperature. It seems that they 
must have been replacing win- 
dows somewhere because there 
was enough plate glass in the 
room to put new windows in all 
of CLC's buildings. The crushed 
glass on the floor did wonders for 
everyone's feet. Some of the play- 
ers brought hangers so they were 
able to hang up their suits while 
others just threw their's into a 
corner. With six minutes left in 
the half the one and only referee 
arrived. He hadn't refereed too 
much basketball but did say he 
was an expert in umpiring La- 
crosse. He had only one acute 
problem all night and that was 
that he couldn't ever find his 
whistle. He kinda reminded me 
of Jerry Bell trying to do a bal- 
let. By the way. before the ref 
came we had asked two to SCC's 
students to do the job, neither 
one knew what a basketball was 
for. After the main side show 
was over the team returned to 
the showers only to find that 
there were only cold showers and 
didn't contain water but some 
kind of sulfur solution. "It was 
a day like all days, filled with 
those events that alter and illum- 
inate the times. This is the twen- 
tieth century," 


s baseball foam is busy practicing, getting ready 
for a big season. 

Baseball Team Takes Shape 

California Lutheran College's 
first baseball team began turning 
out under the direction of coach 
Dr. Luther Schwich, Friday, Feb- 
ruary 23. 

General conditioning and basic 
fundamentals were the main fac- 
tors stressed in the early prac- 
tices. The squad began with 
windsprints and then worked into 
their infield warmup. To get an 
idea of where the different mem- 
bers of the team might play, Dr. 
Schwich, hit infield balls to each 

Dr. Schwich was very im- 
pressed with the showing of some 
of the team members and only 
hopes the CLC field may be fin- 
ished so the team may practice. 
Work began on the baseball field 
February 1, but due to the rain, 
little has been done on it for 
three weeks. CLC opens its sea- 
son March 17, against Biola col- 

lege there. It will be a double- 
header. If CLC is to play any 
home games it will depend on 
the completion of the field. 

One addition to CLC's baseball 
team was donated by Mr. Curtis 
Hove, m the form of a three hun- 
dred dollar pitching machine. 
This will be used much in pre- 
season and regular season hitting 

Those turning out for baseball 
and their probable positions are 
as follows: Allen Aronson infield, 
George Engdahl catcher, Al Howe 
infield, Jim Huchthausen pitcher, 
Paul Kilbert infield. Jack Knisley 
infield-pitcher, Lupie Martinez 
outfield, Brian McConnel infield, 
Fritz Ohlrich catcher, Tom Olsen 
infield, Jim Schaff infield. Rich- 
ard Stolee outfield, Warren Tay- 
lor outfield, Bob Weber outfield, 
Roger Wilmarth outfield, and 
John Wold outfield. 


Vol. I 



No. 8 


One day and one week from 
today, the long awaited first Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College Carnival 
wiil be here. The area directly 
west of the basketball courts will 
be transformed by booths, ex- 
hibits, and sideshows into a gala 
fun-filled carnival which will be 

remembered by all. Surprises ga- 
lore wiil be present as much of 
the Carnival events are to re- 
main a secret until the big day. 
when at one o'clock the festivi- 
ties begin. The sideshows, espe- 
cially, will be a surprise accord- 
ing to Ben Fredericks. However, 

CLC Women pose quesfions to three Adrian Models. 

'Seven Steps Toward Poise' 

Thursday evening. March 8. at 
7:00. Mr. William Adrian spoke 
to the girls of Alpha Hall, the 
faculty women, and the women 
from the surrounding community 
on "Seven Steps Toward Poise." 

Kim Bodding, chairman of the 
series of lectures for Beauty 
Emphasis Month, introduced Mr. 
Adrian as the Director of Amer- 
ica's Original All-Teen Model 
Agency and school in Pasadena. 

Mr. Adrian gave a little back- 
ground to the modeling business, 
telling about some of the girls in 
his agency and their careers. He 
explained what a cover girl was 
and how the different magazines 
picked the covers they used on 
their magazines. 

Mr. Adrian then gave the wom- 
en some points on how to act 
at an interview for a job. He 

illustrated these points by acting 
out the bad points and having 
the audience tell him what was 
wrong with his poise. This 
brought the point home more 
than just his lecture would have. 

Mr. Adrian talked about the 
salaries the models got for the 
different types of jobs they did 
— cover girl, commercials, il- 
lustrations, pictui'es, or being a 
hostess at car shows, etc. 

At the conclusion there was a 
fashion show at which Mr. Adrian 
had four of his models model 
new swim suits. After that there 
was a question and answer per- 
iod where the audience could 
ask the models questions. The 
program was generally enjoyed 
by all in attendance. The second 
program of the series, featuring 
hair styling, was held last night 
at 7 p.m. 

Dr. /. H. Kramer Metnorium 

"Dr. and Mrs. J. Henry Kra- 
mer are among the first bene- 
factors of California Lutheran 
College. When we needed encour- 
agement they gave us help; and 
they saw in the vision of the 
college an opportunity to express 
their own deep Christian faith. 
As long as the college lasts, the 
name of Kramer will live. Our 
sincere sympathy goes to Mrs. 
Kramer," said Dr. Orville Dahl, 
President of CLC. 

The Dr. Job Henry Kramer of 
whom Dr. Dahl was speaking was 
bom February 26, 1880 in Manns 
Choice, Pennsylvania. He and 
Mrs. Kramer both graduated 
from Valparaiso University in 
Indiana after which he was a 
doctor in Chicago for many years. 

Approximately ten years ago 
Dr. and Mrs. Kramer retired to 
Pasadena. They became members 
of the Lutheran Church of the 
Foothills in La Canada. 

Three years ago they were 
brought to the campus by Mr. 
and Mrs. Cress. From that time 
on California Lutheran College 
became a part of their life and 
they showed great interest in 
this project. To help the project 
along they sold a piece of real 

estate and donated the funds, es- 
timated at approximately $60,000, 
to build the faculty apartments 
now called Kramer Court. Dr. 
Kramer was then made a mem- 
ber of the Fellows of California 
Lutheran College. 

In May 1961, the United Lu- 
theran Church elected Dr. Kra- 
mer a member of the Convoca- 
tors. In September of the same 
year the Kramers sold their home 
in Pasadena to reside at 1339 
Fairway Drive in Camarillo so 
that they might be closer to the 
college. They were planning to 
move to our campus in the near 

Dr. Kramer died February 27, 
1962. the day after his 82nd birth- 
day, in an unfoitunate car acci- 
dent. A memorial service was 
held in Holy Trinity Lutheran 
Church on Friday, March 2, 1962, 
at 11 AM. The great respect the 
student body had for this truly 
dedicated man was shown by the 
large representative number in 
attendance. As Dr. Dahl has said, 
the Kramers expressed their own 
deep Christian faith in their in- 
terest in California Lutheran Col- 
lege, in whose hearts and lives 
the Kramers will always live. 

several other areas have been 

made public. Among these are 

the booths. Janie Titterington 
mentioned that among the booths 
there would be a jail booth, an 
artist's booth where people can 
have their portraits drawn, and 
a dart-balloon booth. Also there 
will be a picture booth where 
couples or individuals may have 
a portrait taken in order to re- 
member that day. Some more 
fun-fil!ed events will be the pie 
eating contest, the bubble gum 
blowing contest, and for the ath- 
letic people, there will be a tri- 
cycle race, so start conditioning 
those legs! 

The decision has been made to 
invite the community of Thousand 
Oaks to the Carnival. All events 
and contests will be open to the 
general public, George "Inx" 
Engdahl, general chairman of the 
Carnival, announced this, and 
also said that the letters of invi- 
tation have been sent to two hun- 
dred Luther Leagues in the state 
to attend the Carnival. Another 
area in which participation is 
heartily welcomed is the exhib- 
its and displays. Larry Hocken- 
beny and Gary Cockrell, co- 
chairmen of the Exhibits Com- 
mittee, have announced that there 
will be three divisions. These Eire 
art, hobbies, and projects, and 
each winner in a division will re- 
ceive an award. Students wishing 
to participate should contact 
either of the co-chairmen. Judges 
for the exhibits will he Dr. Mag- 
nuson, Mrs. Hendricks, and Mr. 
Dille. Besides individuals, clubs 
are invited to enter projects, dis- 
plays, etc. With the general pub- 
lic being invited, the merchants 
of Thousand Oaks have been in- 
vited to show commercial dis- 
plays. Door prizes will probably 
be donated by the local mer- 
chants. In conjunction with the 
exhibits, there will be an exhibit 
of the door prizes to be given 

Undoubtedly one of the high 
points of the first CLC CARNI- 
VAL will be the TALENT SHOW. 
Due to the length of time which 
the carnival will run, there have 
been two performances of the 
show scheduled, one in the after- 
noon at 2:30 and one in the eve- 
ning at 8:00. The shows will be 
given in Alpha Hall. According 
to Carolyn Dybdal and Lenna 
Blamey. co-chairman of the Tal- 
ent Show Committee, the show 
is titled "Off Broadway," from 
1919 to 1962. The years when the 
20 's roared in, and flappers 
danced the Charleston, and jazz 
with a syncopated beat came in- 
to being, will start off the spec- 
tacular performances. Then will 
come a selection from Cole Por- 
ter's "High Society." Other acts 
include the modem dance num- 
ber to the theme music of Peter 
Gunn. Mr. Dille will entertain 
with a monologue, and other 
members of the faculty have 
promised to deliver more enter- 
tainment. Two other numbers on 
the program are "Lullaby of 
Broadway" and "Word Jazz." 
The CLC Quartet, consisting of 
Bill Ewing, Otis Kline. Bryan 
Spafford, and Dennis Weems, will 
sing the spiritual "Ride the Char- 
iot." Another high point in the 
show will be the selections from 
George Gershwin's immortal Por- 
gy and Bess. BUI Ewing and 
Miriam Bloomquist will do a duet 
to "Bess, You is My Woman." 
Miriam will sing the solo "Sum- 
mertime,' ' and Bill will sing 
"Woman is a Sometimes Thing." 
With the fine entertainers who 
have been assembled for this 
progi-am. the Talent Show prom- 
ises to be a smash success. 

The Freshman Standing Committee is shown above 
discussing the carnival plans. 

Speech Tournament 
Nets Two CLC Winners 

On March 2 and 3. the South- 
ern California Collegiate Foren- 
sics Association Masters' Tourna- 
ment was held at Long Beach 
State College. CLC had two rep- 
resentatives competing in the 
speech tournament; Marianne 
Wilson and Chris Salminen. Both 
contestants did surprisingly well; 
Marianne taking a second place 
in persuasive speaking and a 
fourth place in oral interpreta- 
tion, and Chris taking two fourth 
places in oral interpretation and 
impromptu speaking. Both com- 
peted in the junior level competi- 

Dr. Kenneth Sulston, lecturer 
in creative arts at CLC and ad- 
visor to the contestants, said "We 
went primarily to gain exper- 
ience, but Marianne really sur- 
prised us all by taking second 
place in the difficult ai'ea of per- 
suasive speaking." Dr. Sulston 
went on to say "At the time we 
registered to compete in the tour- 

nament, we had no idea that it 
was a masters tournament." 
That is, the contestants consisted 
of only the best forensic teams 
from each of 27 Southern Cali- 
fornia colleges. 

When Chris Salminen was 
asked what his reaction was to 
the speech tournament, this being 
his first participation in collegiate 
tournaments, he replied "Speech 
tournaments are a great exper- 
ience, and I feel that everyone 
should participate in at least one 
during his college career." 

Marianne Wilson said that she 
was quite excited when she 
learned she won the second place 
and that after a loud scream for 
joy. she was speechless. 

Dr. Sulston added "Several 
speech tournaments are sched- 
uled for this spring, and students 
wishing to attend and participate 
must try-out in the different cate- 
gories." Interested students 
should contact him immediately. 

Marianne Wilson Is pictured above delivering her 
winning speech. 

Leaguers Donate $1000 to CLC 

California Lutheran College is 

the recipient of a gift of $1,000.00 
from the California and Ai'izona 
Luther Leaguers of the Augustana 
LuUieran Church. The gift will 
be used to establish a scholarship 

Each yeai" the faculty will 
award a $50.00 scholarship, rep- 
resenting the earnings on the 
fund, to a junior or senior stu- 
dent who is a member of the 
California or Arizona Luther 
Leagues of the Augustana Lu- 
theran Church. The award will 

be on the basis of academic rec- 
ord and financial need. The schol- 
arship will be known as the 
"CALL" Scholarship. "CALL" 
means California-Arizona Luther 

Commenting on the gift Dr. 
Dalil said, "Gifts of this kind are 
of significant help to students. 
In this instance we must remem-

The Echo Chamber Happy Talk Letters to the Editor 

March Sixteenth, 

As March sixteenth dawned 
upon the young college with the 
crackerbox buildings bulging with 
fresh vigor and strength and with

As the students dozed through 
their first class, yawned through

through their third, they were

heads, gulped their noon-time 
meal, and disposed the dirty rem- 
nants of past satisfaction in the 

busily steaming little room, they 
felt that today, March sixteenth, 
was a very uniquely special day. 

As their notebooks finally 
closed bearing the weary brunt 
of the last afternoon lecture, and 
as they lay back thinking during 
the hours of the inevitable dusk, 
resting before the next repast, 
they knew that this was March 
sixteenth, a wonderfully special 

Then, after the evening meal 
was done and the study lamp 
was lit and out, the students 
closed their tired eyes and 
thought "Ah, what a special day 
this has been!" And then they 
wondered and dreamed of tomor- 
row and of whether it, too, would 
be a very special day.

Take the advice of some un- 
fortunates, and don't go to Dodge 
City for quite a while. Informa- 
tion has recently reached my 
ears that during one of the past 
week-ends two students and a 
visitor decided to go see Dodge 


I haven't been able to get the 
story very clear but this is ap- 
proximately what happened. The 
three brave girls started out at 
an early time. In fact, it was so 
early that the frost was still set- 
tling on the grass. But being very 
healthy, (actually they were bun- 
dled so well they looked like 
Eskimos) the cold failed to bother 

These three tromped across one 
of the nearby fields. This must 
have been rather humorous (as 
I have been told, they got mud 
up to the top and even into their 
rain boots). Ah! You may groan, 
but the best part of the whole 
trip was the fact that they had 
to turn around and return to our 
campus. You see, the road oyer 
to Dodge City was washed out 
during the rains we experienced. 

When they returned to CLC 
they were generously caked with 
a few layei-s of half dried mud. 
The foyer had just been waxed 
so they couldn't go in that way. 
I really don't think they 
would have wanted to anyhow. 
They couldn't get in the back 
doors as the alarms were set. 
What was their solution? They 
simply had a friend indoors re- 
move the screens from the laun- 
dry room and they crawled in 
that way. They may have gotten 
off easily that way but wait un- 
til the time comes when they 
have to explain to their moms 
why they threw out those old 
tennis shoes! 

Zone's Troce 

By Zane 

Is one always one? Most math- 
ematicians agree that this is cor- 
rect, but construction engineers 
tend to disagree. One day of 
rain does not mean one day lost 
on construction — it could mean 
two or three, especially since 
mud is a prime factor. Wheel- 
barrows sink, cement trucks bog 
down, and forms collapse. But 
if buildings were more complet- 
ed, work could continue despite 
showers and mud. 

Rains have hindered grading 
of the temporary athletic fields 
so much that the baseball dia- 
mond will not be ready for an- 
other two or three weeks. 

The rains have done much 
good inasmuch as there is more 
water in the ground and less is 
needed to be pumped out. The 
water tables meanwhile may 
raise ten to thirty feet, while our 
unsung heroes, the water pumps, 
have an opportunity to rest. 

A 72-hour continuous flow test 
on the second north campus well 
began at 150 gallons per minute 
and ended at 60 g.p.m. A fifteen 
horsepower submereible pump 
has been lowered 370 feet into 
the well, which is expected to 
produce 100 g.p.m. intermittant 
flow. It will eventually be tied 
into the main college water sys- 

Meanwhile, construction still 
manages to progress on the cen- 
trum. Building H. the profession- 
al building, has most undergiound 
plumbing and electrical conduit. 
The brick walls have reached 
the second story level. Late next 
week the floor slab will be poured 
and the second story steel begin 
to be put in place. Last week 
the elevator piston was installed, 
which is the last elevator work 
that can be done until after the 
shaft is plastered in the com- 
pleted building. 

An 800 square foot addition to 
the bank has recently been ap- 
proved. Foundations are now in 
for buildings B, C, D, and E. The 
D-E complex will house the li- 
brary. News on the Motel con- 
tract is expected shortly. 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to bring up a prob- 
lem concerning the new counsel- 
ing service now being used at 

C.L.C. The students were told 
that one of the great advantages 
of this new system was that five 
members of the faculty, each 
representing their own division, 
would be present. This was to 
enable the student to plan his 
college career with opinions com- 
ing from professors of the dif- 
ferent areas. 
When I went for my interview, 

I was surprised to find only two 
members of the committee pres- 
ent. I have talked with other stu- 
dents and they have had similar 

I am sure all of us know that 
the faculty's time is very limit- 
ed. I feel, however, that the stu- 
dents would be willing to wait 
until a time could be set that 
was convenient for all concerned. 

If any of the faculty or stu- 
dents have opinions concerning 
this matter, I am sure it would 
prove of interest to everyone.

CLC Chapel Personalities 

By Marcia 

Reverend Floyd Lawson 

of the Mount Calvary Lutheran 
Church in Anaheim said that life 
is like Moorpark Road — full of 
holes, rough spots, and washouts. 
But Christians must be ready to 
face what it is and accept it in 
their stride. He also put forth 
the challenging question, "What 
does your religion mean to you?" 
What is the answer? Can it truth- 
fully be said about you that you 
are more concerned about and 
interested in someone else rather 
than yourself? Kipling has given 
us the call to Christianity in his 
words, "If you can save your life 
when all around you are losing 
theirs, you will be a man my 
son." Say along with Pastor Law- 
son, "I want to challenge life; 
I want to take what I have and 
what I am and put it against 

.... Pastor Elbern Rommereim 
of the Shepherd of the Valley 
Lutheran Church in Canoga Park. 
"Why Be A Christian? What Is 
It Worth?" A Christian's life sur- 
passes all others for basically 
three reasons: 1. It is the hap- 
piest life in search of a goal; 
they never find one because they 
have not found their Savior. A 
Christian has a song to sing, be- 
cause he has ended his search. 
2. It is the hardest life to live. 
A person who dares to take the 
cross upon his shoulders will find 


it is often very hard. But a re- 
ligion that costs nothing is worth 

nothing. Christianity provides ful- 
ly the challenge of adventure 
even to the most adventurous 
person. 3, It is the most hopeful 
life for "A Christian is a person 
who has his windows open to 

Reverend Herman Meyer 

of the First Lutheran Church in 
Fullerton spoke on "Status on 
Our Campus". His topic was de- 
veloped around the "campus dei- 
ties" of conformity and non-con- 
formitism, which are the two 
ways of seeking status. Are you 
one of those little piggies who 
refuses to stay at home when 
emother goes to market and joms 
in a mass chorus of "wee, wee, 
wee"? Or on the other hand, are 
you like the man who combed 
his hair from side to side when 
the style was front to back and 
had the embarassment of peo- 
ple whispering in his nose? 
Which ever one you may be, bear 
in mind that the only true status 
is the Regal Status before God, 
which is never achieved and only 
received. "Do not be conformed 
to this world, but he transformed 
by the renewal of your mind, 
that you may prove what is the 
will of God. what is good and 
acceptable and perfect." Romans 

CLC Literary Review 

By Terry 

Praise be to John Keats, who 
in his hilarious little book "The 
Insolent Chariots" has given us 
the saga of the American auto- 
mobile. According to Mr. Keats. 
"Once upon a time the American 
met the automobile and felt in 
love. Unfortimately this led them 
into a matrimony and he did not 
live happily ever after. Quickly 
she became the nagging wife, de- 
manding bits of chrome, rub- 
bings, shinnings. and gifts. She 
lifted her face expensively from 
year to year, and developed ever 
more costly eating habits. She 
grew sow-fat while demanding 
bigger, wider, smoother roads. 
Then, with all the subtleness of 
a madam, she put tail fins 
on her overblown bustle 
and sprouted wavering an- 
tennae from each fin. And, of 
course, each new whim was 
more costly than the last." Be- 


ginning in "the year of our Ford" 
one, this wonderfully satiric lit- 
tle book reviews all the sordid 
and smutty, ludicrous and fan- 
tastic escapades of the American 
auto and her industry; the Au- 
tomobile Manufacturing Associa- 
tion, to which the book is dedi- 
cated. Covered are such blun- 
ders as "Edsel," such tragedys 
as the birth of the super-high- 
way and subsequent death of the 
scenic country road, such abomi- 
nations as the auto dealer's high 
pressure-low ethic salesmanship, 
such ludicrousness as the ' 'ad 
and the id" of commercial come- 
hither campaigns, and such abor- 
tive attempts at design as "De- 
troit's amorphous, amoeboid 
shape." In all due respect to the 
originators of the nomenclature, 
1 would best describe Mr. Keat's 
contribution to American motor- 
uig as "Super-funny!"

C. Robert Zimmerman, 
Professor of Music 

Head of CLC's Music Depart- 
ment is Mr. C. Robert Zimmer- 
man. He is a perfectionist: his 
students here will agree to that. 
They have experienced his dy- 
namic personality and "uncanny 
musical savvy." 

Mr. Zimmerman grew up in 
Spokane and was graduated from 
Washington State in 1941. Nine- 
teen Forty-four brought Mr. Zim- 
merman to Portland as chorale 
director at Lincoln High School. 
After one year there he became 
Education and Music Director of 
Portland's NBC radio station 
KGW in which capacity he re- 
mained for two yeai's. In that 
same year he gave Portland a 
civic choir by gathering together 
60 mixed voices and presenting 
them in a Christmas perform- 
ance of Handel's "Messiah." The 

group became known as the Port- 
land Symphonic Choir. 

In the spring of 1947. Mr. Zim- 
merman moved to N.Y. to further 
his education and was recipient 
of a scholarship to study choral 
conducting during that summer 
at Tanglewood and the next year 
at Juillard School of Music un- 
der Robert Shaw. While in New 
York he took additional graduate 
work both at Juillard and Colum- 
bia University and sang in 
Shaw's professional groups. 

In 1948. he returned to Port- 
land to re-assume directorship of 
the Symphonic Choir and to 
teach choral music at the Uni- 
versity of Portland. Under Mr. 
Zimmerman's guidance, the Port- 
land Choir grew to national prom- 
inence, winning critical acclaim 
in 1959 with an RCA recording 

Mr. C. Robert- Zimmerman, Associate Professor in Creative 
Arts, looks over possible selections for the next choir tour. 

of "Requiem Mass," nominated 
by the National Academy of Re- 
cording Arts and Science for the 
year's best classical recording. 

Mr. Zimmerman was appomted 
Associate Professor of Music at 
Linfield College, Oregon in 1958. 
He taught Voice and Music and 
directed the A Cappella Chour 

He was often called upon to 
act in the capacity of choral con- 
sultant, adjudicator and festival 
director in competitions and fes- 
tivals throughout the Northwest. 
He is a Past President of the 
Oregon Choral Conductors Guild 
and during his 15 years in Port- 
land, was always engaged in 
Church work, either as tenor so- 
loist or choir director. 

Mr. Zimmerman met his wife, 
Janice at college. She was a 
member of the Choir and he was 
student director. Mrs. Zimmer- 
man is musically inclined also 
and has upon occasion directed 
one of his choirs in his absence. 

In August, 1961 Mr. Zimmer- 
man left behind his 15 years 
work with the Portland Sympho- 
nic Choir he had founded, and 
moved to California to become 
Associate Professor of Music at 
California Lutheran College. 

The Zimmermans have three 
sons and a daughter. Chuck is 
a sophomore at Linfield College 

in Oregon; Steve is a senior at 
Camarillo High School where he 
is known for his skill on the bas- 
ketball court; Lorrie Ann will en- 
ter the new Thousand Oaks High 
School next fall; and their young- 
est, Rick, is in the 5th grade. 

As for his reasons for deciding 
to come to CLC, Mr. Zimmer- 
man says that they are complex. 
Briefly, he thought that it would 
be challenging, interesting, and 
rewarding to start cifresh in an 
environment which would be con- 
ducive to good music and where 
he would have freedom to ex- 
press his own ideas and not be 
bound by rigid traditions. 

As for CLC plans, Mr. Zimmer- 
man invisions a Music Depart- 
ment which will develop an in- 
terest in every phase of music, 
so that when a student leaves 
CLC as a music major he will 
be equipped in background for 
further study in a specific area 
or for production in all phases. 
Mr. Zimmerman would like to 
see an Opera Department at CLC 
within the next two or three 
years. This would involve the co- 
operation of the entire Creative 
Arts Division. Mr. ZimmeiTnan 
has said that he has found that 
cooperation of this sort "pays 
dividends in quality of output." 
An Opera Department will cer- 
tainly be something to look for- 
wai-d to as CLC grows.

Alexander Haas, personnel man- 
ager of such great artists as Pav- 
lova, Pinza, Schumanheinck, Pa- 
derewski and Rachmaninov, pre- 
sented a lecture in the Artist 
Series on March 1. 1%2. The lec- 
ture was entitled ' 'Backstage 
with the Artists." 

Mr. Haas entranced his au- 
dience with stories about the hu- 
morous incidents experienced by 
the great artists. Immediately the 
audience discovered that artists 
are just as human and face 
many of the same problems that 
the ordinary person does. 

One of the incidents, which Mr. 
Haas recounted , concerned the 
great Paderewski. who was giv- 
ing a concert in Denver at the 

During intermission Paderew- 
ski was talking with a little old 
lady who had come backstage to 
see him. The mamager of the 
place in which he was giving his 
performance had come back- 
stage with some of his friends 
who wanted to meet the great 
musician. The manager stood be- 
hind Paderewski and began tug- 

ging at his sleeve. Paderewski 
paid no attention to him. When 
he saw the conversation still con- 
tinued and Paderewski failed to 
acknowledge him, he began tug- 
ging irrately. Without blinking, 
Paderewski reached over and 
gently removed the manager's 
hand and said. "Yours, I be- 
lieve?" After which he continued 
his conversation with the lady. 

Mr. Haas brought out two qual- 
ities which mark the true great- 
ness of an artist. Firstly, the 
artist must have ego which will 
drive him on toward perfect pres- 
entations. Secondly, he has to 
have a sense of humility along 
with his genius. It is the balanc- 
ing of these, according to Mr. 
Haas, which makes a great art- 

TTie people who attended the 
lecture were delighted by Mr. 
Haas and his speech. Many of 
those who were unable to attend, 
as well as those who were there, 
have expressed the hope that 
Mr. Haas will soon return to 
speak to the entire student body. 

Last Tuesday evening, CLC's faculty held a banquet 
at the Las Posas Country Club in celebration of the 
recent accreditation. Mr. Charles C. Dold, controller 
for the college, acted as toastmaster for the evening.

CLC's baseball team, coached by Dr. Luther Schwich, has 
batting practice, getting prepared for tomorrow's game. 

CLC Baseball Inaugural 

By Woody Wilk 

Tomorrow's the day! Why? 
CLC's baseballers will journey to 
La Mirada for theu- twin-bill 
opener against Biola College. The 
first game is slated to begin at 
1:00 P.M. Paul Carlson gets the 
mound call for this one and will 
start the second. 

Eulogizing Paul would take up 
quite a bit of space, but since 
Inx devoted some lines to him 
the task is simplified. "Liebob- 
ber" as he is affectionately called 
by his teammates, was an all- 
CIF shortstop in 1960. His more 
recent laurels were earned on 
the diamond at Occidental Col- 
lege last year as a freshman. 
Now. Paul has never started a 
game as a pitcher, but if you 
name it. he can ttirow it — and 
FAST! After reading this article 
and "Insight." "Lieby" is prob- 
ably up on cloud nine. So, why 
don't we shift to Dick Stolee. Al 
Aronson and Jim Hachtausen. 
Dick, or "shotgun" is due to 
start in rightfield and with that 
rifle arm, should be right at 
home. Al, new here at the se- 
mester, is a very well received 
newcomer. Baseball however, is 
nothing new to Al having l>een 
a first string first baseman at 
Tempelton High for four yeai-s 
and making all-league honors in 
his senior year. "Huck" isn't any 
stranger either, and when not 
gunning throws from shortstop, 
he will spell Lieby of his chores 
on the tiill. 

Having never seen any Cali- 
fornia teams play. Dr. Schwich 
stated that he is unable to make 
any predictions on the coming 
season. He added that it was his 
feeling that we are ahead of any 
mid-west team he has coached 
due to better weather conditions. 

Granted, our weather hasn't been 
"the greatest," but we haven't 
had Nebraska snow. yet. During 
the week, run-downs, cut-off 
plays, and pick-offs have been 
diligently worked on under Dr. 
Schwich's instruction. A quote 
from Ralph Houk, Yankee field 
manager, summed up Dr. 
Schwich's philosophy of the dia- 
mond sport. "We do a lot more 
work on defense . . . because 
it's my notion that . . . you very 
seldom beat another team. The 
losers beat themselves, the pitch- 
er beats himself, you fail to make 
the cut-off or you don't take the 
extra base when you've got the 
chance." Physical errors also 
take their toll in losses also. It 
is the general opinion of the 
team and coach that our offense 
needs more attention and that 
the defense has jelled very well 
in seeming to be ready for to- 
morrow's two encounters. 

If you find yourself unable to 
attend tomorrow's games, a note 
of enocuragement would strength- 
en morale of any team member 
you see, and if possible, why not 
endeavor to give the baseball and 
track teams a rousing send-off? 

Probable starting line-up for 
CLC's opener: 

C — George Engdahl 
P — Paul Carlson 
IB — Al Aronson 
28 — Woody Wilk 
3B — Jack Knisley 
SS — Jim Huchtausen 
LF — Fritz Ohlrich 
CF — Brian McConnell 
RF — Bob Weber 

Note: this is not the probable 
batting order. 

The 7-10 Corner 

By Mike Robertson 

It has come to my attention 
that many students aren't com- 
ing out for the bowling league 
because they don't ever win. In 
order to win at bowling, a per- 
son needs to know more than 
merely how to throw a black ball 
at ten pins. Many games are won 
in the area behind the telescore. 
Here are a few tips on how to 
pick up those extra pins which 
you often need to win. First, you 
should always keep score, and 
remember 3 + 4—8. Next, you 
always congratulate the other 
team on their most recent loss. 
Sympathize with them about what 
a tough night it must have been; 
keep them in the dumps, If you 
can't keep them in the dumps, 
then try telling them a good 
joke. If they're laughing, then 
they can't concentrate on throw- 
ing the ball. After the opposing 

bowler muffs his shot, you should 
follow by congratulating him on 
each bad shot. Always refer to 
his good shots as luck and not 
skill. Now, perhaps the most 
effective pointer to remember is 
the disturbance technique. Al- 
though there are many noises in 
a bowling alley and the average 
bowler is accustomed to them, 
sudden unusual noises ruin__ the 
opposing bowler's concentration. 
As the other bowler is approxi- 
mately half way through his ap- 
proach, you should sneeze loudly 
or go into a coughing fit. A 
sharp, shrill whistle at an imagi- 
nary blond also shatters his con- 
centration. And finally, if you're 
bowling against one of the facul- 
ty teams, for goodness sakes. 
don't beat them too badly — at 
least not just before midterm or 
final exams! 

Football SEa^ed 

As with other colleges around 
the nation, our sports scene be- 
gins to set its main focus on 
track and baseball — the out- 
door attractions of the spring. 

However, down at Bovard and 
Spaulding Fields (SC and UCLA 
respectively), spring football 
practice will soon move onto the 
scene. Yes, football has a part 
in spring also, pads and all, CLC 
has inLercolleg'ate football tenta- 
tively set on its schedule of fall 
sports. We now are confronted 
with the question of the above 
mentioned spring practice for our 
aspiring grlddcrs of autumn, 1%2. 

A hasty interview with our 
backfield coach, more commonly 
recognized as Pastor James Kal- 
las, disclosed that actual organ- 
ized practice hinges on a decision 
to be made by the Regents at 
the end of the month. Also, with- 
in at least six weeks the appoint- 
ment of our head coach is an- 
ticipated. So, keep your cleats 
cleaned guys, we'll get our 
chance. Maybe even a field too, 
barring mudslides! 

Track and Field 

By Grant HoUey 

The C.L.C. track men, under 
the helm of Coach John Kahnert, 
looked very favorable for a first 
year team. They have competed 
in one track meet to date, and 
according to Mr. Kahnert the 
boys gave their very best. He 
feels that with experience and 
conditioning they can improve 
greatly. What they are lacking 
in facilities is not a handicap, 
nor will it become one. For what 
they are missing here, they have 
made up for with hai-d work and 
a positive attitude. All in all, 
Mr. Kahnert was well pleased 
with the results at the meet, but 
he added that they could improve 
their endurance. 

On Saturday, March 3, the 
team traveled to La Playa Sta- 
dium in Santa Barbara to meet 
with four other teams in a five- 
way contest. They competed with 
Westmont, Chapman, Pasadena, 
and La Vern colleges. C.L.C. en- 
tered seven men in seven events. 
The outstanding men for C.L.C. 
were Russell Flora, who picked 
up two places; one in the one- 
mile run with a time of 5:09.00 
with an over all fiftli place, and 
one in the two mile run with a 
time of 11:23.4 with an over-all 
fifth place. Roger Anderson 
placed fifth in the 880 yd run 
with a time of 2:06.4, and Jerry 
Leibersbach placed fourth in the 
440 yd. iTin with a time of 56 
sec. flat. The single C.L.C. sprint- 
er, Tom Eckland, placed fifth 
in the 100 yd. dash with a time 
of 11.1, and placed sixth in the 
220 yd. dash with a time of 23.7. 
The field events were the weak- 
est point. Chuck Coons put the 
shot, and Bob Weber threw the 

We should see great improve- 
ment in the future, after the 
C.L.C. track and field is com- 
pleted. I don't see a real success- 
ful season this year, but I do see 
a very satisfactory and maybe 
even a surprising one. 

WRA Basketball 

Of interest to the female read- 
ers of the sports section of the 
Mountclef Echo will be this col- 
umn about the activities of the 
Women's Recreational Associa- 

As of now, twenty-three girls 
have been pai'ticipating under 
the direction of Miss Nena 
Amundson in basketball with the 
ultunate goal of competition wits 
other WRA groups from other 
colleges. Those participating ai*e: 
Tiffany Barnard, Joan Des- 
Roches, Mary Alice Gunning. 
Joanne Holm. Karolyn Isaacson, 
Kathy Klug, Margi Liivamaa, 
Barbara Link, Susan Marks, 
Mai-y Lou Melick, Peggy Meyer, 
Verlis Miller, Linda Minah, Mar- 
cia Peterson, Lou Ellen Samp- 
son, Judy Schueler, Nadine 
Schultz, Susan Smith, Marcia 
Tamtiert, Susan Thouren. Louene 
Weber, Judy Westberg, and Nan- 
cy Westberg. 


Baseball is here in all its glory. 
After about a four month layoff, 
the men and boys of the United 
States are back at playing the 
old American pastime once 
more. From the LA area it is 
probably, "Come on you Bums 
or Angels," but this corner is 
yelling, "Scalp "em Indians!" 
What am I talking about? THE 
SPOKANE INDIANS, of course. 
That great AAA ball club from 
that even greater and more beau- 
tiful state of Washington. If it 
wasn't for the Indians, those 
Dodgers would be out to lunch. 
(By the way if you are up in 
that neck of the woods to go to 
the World's Fair, drop in at my 
house in Spokane. Maybe the In- 
dians will be at home for one 
of those great series of their's, 
and we can go out to the old ball 
park for a look-see.) 

It looks like CLC is in the same 
shape with baseball as they were 
with basketball — no field. 
Thanks a lot, rain! A lot of peo- 
ple talk about Washington, but 
this place reminds me of India 
during the monsoon season. In 
spite of the no field situation, 
CLC has some great material out 
there playing ball. Once the team 
gets a little practice in, it will 

By George Engdahl 

have one of the snappiest infields 

around. However, if the ball ever 
gets through the infield, (which 
won't happen too often), we ai-e 
assured of a gi-eat outfield to 
back them up Not many teams 
put a cannon in center field, so 
CLC thought this would make 
quite an attraction. CLC s can- 
non comes in the form of Rich- 
ard Stolee, who is almost assured 
the spot. This guy has got an 
arm like a rifle! If the govern- 
ment ever found out we had this 
guy, they would purchase him 
real fast for use in rocket launch- 
ing. Coach Luther Schwich claims 
he has been losing a considerable 
amount of baseballs because of 
Stolee. It seems he throws 
too high and the ball automatical- 
ly goes into orbit! 

Another standout ball player on 
the team comes in the foiTn of 
Pau! Carlson, CLC's illustrious 
student body president. Paul has 
a reputation a mile long when 
it comes to baseball. He handles 
the bat like it was a toothpick 
and can flag down any ball hit 
within second and third base. 
Like this guy moves! I suggest 
you hit a few of the games this 
year just to take a look at these 
two fellows in action. 

Mr. John Kahnert, instructor of physical education, demon- 
strates before the track team how to put the shot.

2,000 Guests See Carnival 

Last Saturday afternoon Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College held its 
first annual carnival on the lawn 
south of Kramer Court and west 
of the basketball courts. The car- 
nival was to raise a scholarship 
fund for a foreign exchange stu- 
dent and to help finance the 
freshman- sophomore prom. 
Around two thousand guests were 
greeted by the students for an 
enjoyable, fun-filled afternoon be- 
neath a sunny spring sky and a 
gentle sea breeze. 

Over twenty booths had been 
set up by individuals, groups, 
rooms, living groups, classes, and 
clubs. Among them were such 
attractions as a spook house, dart

tagged were Dr. Weilgart. Paul 
Karlstrom, Miss Heian, and Wal- 
ter, the Pinkerton guard. 

The most popular booth was un- 
doubtedly the egg throw, run by 
the sophomore class. At this 
booth students could relieve their 
tensions by throwing eggs at 
such campus figures as Mr. Rol- 
and Dille, English professor and 
sophomore class sponsor, Dr. 
Robert Hage, Dean of students, 
Paul Carlson, ASB president, and 

The carnival also had such fea- 
tures as a side show with a wild 
man, a rubber man, and can-can 
dancers. Exhibits of art work 
and hobbies were on display in 
the dormitories. Jungleland added 
color to the afternoon with a baby 
elephant act. 

During midaftemoon a baked 
goods contest was held, after 
which a cake walk and a bake 
sale were held. The cake judging 
was based on originality, decora- 
tion, and best taste. Originality 
and decoration ran hand-in-hand 
with Gary Wiemar and Don De- 
Mar's cake winning firet place 
in both divisions. Second place in 
both divisions was won by room 
21S — Judy and Nancy Westberg, 
Verlis Miller, and Nancy Hay-

to Carolyn Cottom. First prize 
for best taste went to Lana An- 
dre wson. second place to Miss 
Heian. and third place to Mrs. 
Lutie Ropp. The sweepstakes 
prize went to Miss Heian. 

At 7.30 the drawuifc was held

At 2 and 8 P.M. the students 
presented a talent show to over 
600 guests. The production was 
entitled "Off Broadway." a col- 
lection of skits and songs dating 
frt)m 1919 to 1962. Bill Durfey 
acted as Master of Ceremony for 
the show. 

The first number was a quar- 
tet singing "Ride the Chariot.'* 
The quartet was Bill Ewing, Den- 
nis Weems. Bryan Spafford, and 
Otis Kline. A "word jazz" mono- 
logue was presented by Mary 
Sievers with "Ant Smith" and 
"Mr. Cone". Sandy Hallamore 
as Frank Sinatra and P. J. 
Waites as Celeste Holm followed 
with a pantomime to "Who 
Wants to be a Millionaire", from 
High Society. 

The CLC Madrigals then pre- 
sented three numbers. They were 
"Oh Lemuel," "Comin" Through 
the Rye," and "Summer Eve- 
ning." The solo for the last num- 
ber was sung by Karen Aasen. 
The Madrigals were under the

Some+hing in w 

If somebody told you that the 
earth was flat and firmly be- 
lieved it, you would probably con- 
sider him to be stupid, ridicu- 
lous, insane, or eccentric. Be- 
cause of his belief, he would, no 
doubt, be laughed at and mocked. 

470 years ago, a man by the 
name of Christopher Columbus 
was considered to be stupid, ri- 
diculous, insane, and eccentric. 
He was laughed at and mocked. 
The reason for it was because of 
the absurd belief he had that the 
earth was round! 

Martin Luther once was a 
priest of the Roman Catholic 
Church. He believed several 
things that were contrary to the 
doctrine of the Church, but he 
was unafraid to humbly state 
them. Because of his beliefs, he 
was excommunicated from the 
Church; dishonorably cut-off com- 

Today, the second largest de- 
nomination of Christian churches 
follows this man's beliefs and 
bears his immortal name. 

hich fo believe 

A comparison can be drawn 
between these two men in that 
both of them had beliefs that they 
knew were right, and they were 
willing to prove themselves right, 
but the stern voices of the prag- 
matic majorities were unwilling 
to objectively listen to their be- 
liefs and arguments, and they 
slashed both men down. The ma- 
jorities were too "knowledgeable" 
and too "elite" to even consider 
the arguments of these two men. 

As a result: Columbus left his 
counti-y; Luther left his church. 

An individual who stubbornly 
holds fast to a belief that is prov- 
en wrong and he knows is wrong, 
shows weak character. 

However, that individual who 
holds fast to a belief that is not 
disproven. regardless of its dif- 
fering viewpoint from the opinion- 
ated majority, shows integrity, 
perseverance, and a strong char- 

A principle, in which one be- 
lieves thusly, is worth upholding, 
defending, and following.

college health service. The foun- 
dation is complete, plumbing and 
electrical conduit are in, the 
brick walls are up. and the 
structural steel for the second

Building E was to house a 
drama-theater arts workshop. 
This is now to be temporarily 
located in the dining room addi-

to press, but as yet, there is no 
hint as to whom the contract 
will go. 

CLC Chapal Personalities 

By Marcia Carlson 

Happy Talk 

with Sehultzee 

Many of the nearby home own- 
ers believe the students of Cali- 
fo-nia Lutheran College have 
been staging a mass walk-out. 
Cthe-s feel the college is back- 
ing Pi-esident Kennedy's program 
for physical fitness with more 
than just idle words. Why has 
this been happening? It is sim- 
ple, for any time during the day 
troupes of students, dressed in 
hiking clothes, can be seen charg- 
ing down Moorpark Road. Yet, 
some residents have the general 
feeling that this is not what Pi-es- 
ident Kennedy had in mind with 
his proposal of this program. I 
must agree. Do you think he 
meant that students should roller 
skate four miles or more a week? 
No? Well that is what some are 
doing here as their physical fit- 
ness program. 

I really hate to disillusion the 
well meaning residents but the 
circumstance behind this exer- 
cise fad is not so noble. It mere- 
ly stems from the fact that it is 
the only way in which many stu- 
dents may get down to the shop- 
ping center. It seems that the 
rides, which the college at one 
time provided for nothing, are 
beginning to cost money. The 
point behind this is that the col- 
lege cannot afford to provide the 
gallons of gas which are being 
used in transportation. So, if you 
are broke, you find yourself bor- 
romng someone else's roller 
skates. In ease you cannot find 
any to bon-ow, don't despair. 
While you are waiting you can 
join the rebellion which is brew- 
ing because of the cafeteria food. 
Who knows? It is possible that 
while you are wasting your time 
waiting for the skates you may 
help bring about a reform. Don't 
hold your breath though. 

.... Reverend John Russell, 
intern pastor of the Lutheran 
Church of the Resurrection in 
Canoga Park, California spoke 
on the topic of love. Many peo- 
ple try to act the part of a Chris- 
tian but they really can not do 
it. We can all come to the point 
of a deep seeded concern for 
others if we quit trying to play 
the part and let God make us 
such. Those striving to be true 
Christians must let go of their 
lives, quit resisting and fighting 
God. The conclusion Reverend 
Russell came to was that al- 
though we may want to be Chris- 
tians, we can never be as such 
unless we truly turn ourselves 
over to God and let Him work in 
our lives. 

.... Reverend Charles Hassel- 
back of the Lutheran Church of 
the Redeemer in Sherman Oaks. 
Are you a body or a soul? Man 
is a soul and has a body. Be- 
cause of this— that we have some- 
thing of God in us— it is impor- 
tant for people to know them- ^ 
selves. We are no outlaws in 
God's world; we ai'e on top of 
the order of creation, created in 
his image, and his children. 
Man's highest achievement is to 
be Christ-like; the challenge laid

To climax Beauty Emphasis 
Month, Alpha Hall presented a 
fashion show and tea for Alpha 
Hall, the men, and the faculty 
members. The fashion show was 
held on the patio from 2 to 3 on 
Sunday, March 25, with twelve 
girls modeling clothes from 
Claire's Dress Shop in Woodland 
Hills. The girls were Marilyn An- 
dersen, Linda Kraxberger, Car- 
ole Cramer, Peggy McClintock, 
Carole Dahl, Lana Andrewson. 
Linda Minah, Marcia Tambert, 
Brenda Priest, Sonja Hayden, 
Earlene Hurty, and Mai-ilee AIne. 

Claire's Dress Shop has prices 
to fit all budgets and all the

ries every variety of clothes from 
morning to evening wear, and 
she has been in business in the

Judy Westberg was over-all chair- 
man with sub-chairmen Brenda 
Kuehnert, food and decorations; 
Penny Myhre, fashion show; and 
Christina Barter, publicity. 

Dr. R. Mortvedt: 
PLU President 

Dr. Robert A. L. Mortvedt of 
Chicago was elected president of 
Pacific Lutheran University 
March 5 by the board of re- 
gents. He is expected to start 
his six-year term July 31 when 
Dr. S. C. Eastvold will retire aft-

Dr. Mortvedt, 59, supervises 28 
educational institutions as execu- 
tive director of the boai-ds of 
Christian higher education for 
both the Augustana Lutheran 
Church and the United Lutheran 
Church in America. He took over 
the Augustana post in June. 1958,

New Delhi. India to the ASB. 
In attendance at this convention 
were 600 delegates, representing 
193 church bodies. While at the 
convention the delegates had the 
opportunity to view the conditions 
in this, one of the poorest, lands 
in all of the world, where the 
average income per person is 
$70 per year, the life expectancy 
is 42 years, and thousands of 
refugees from Tibet and Pakistan 
sleep in the streets. The average 
diet of the people is one-third 
deficient of our considered "min- 
imum" to keep body and soul 
together. The Council is a serious 
minded group of Christians who 
get together to talk and share 
their faith in Jesus Christ. It is 
Dr. Falde's opinion that we 
should continue with these con- 
ferences because people must 
strive for the unity of the one 
faith — that one being in Jesus

You say you love college, and 
you're getting all D's in your 
courses? You say you're broke 
and can't afford stamps, and 
you're rooming with a girl who 
has a pet snake and she wants 
you to love it like a brother? Is 
that what's bothering you friend? 

You say your roommate is an 
English tea drinker and she hid 
your sixpack under the bed and 
it's getting warm? Is that what's 
bothering you, friend? 

You say you had a blind date 
and his guide dofj bit you? You 
say your ixiommate fiTeHcfri your 
new formal for the dance, fell 
down the stairs, ripped your for- 
mal, and broke the heels of your 
new shoes? Is that what's both- 
ering you, friend? 

You say the roof fell down in 
your room, and girls keep drop- 
ping in? You say .vou're stuck in 
your doi-m with 170 other girls, 
and the house mother and all her 
spies? You say your boyfriend 
had a date last night, and it 
turned out to be your best friend? 
You sny that cute boy you were 
after is married and now his wife 
is after you? Is that what's get- 
tin-r you down? 

You say you stayed up all night 
camming for an exam and then 
slept through it the next mom- 
ins? You say you went out and 
got bombed one night, and told 
your date you'd mairy him. and 
now you can't remember his 
name, and he keeps calling you 
up to set the date? Is that what's 
on your mind? 

You say your house mother 
knocked on the door to collect 
for the dorm drive just as your 
boyfriend was climbing in the 
window and you had to push him 
out? You say your bed was short- 
sheeted and filled with ci-umbs, 
and some slob put saran-wrap on 
the toilet seat and . . . .? Is that 
what's bothering you, friend? 

You say your room faces the 
men's doi-m and your blinds ai-e 
broken and you have to dress in 
the closet . . . and this morning 
the closet door fell off??? Don't 
despair, friend, I'm having the 
same trouble. ....

CLC Professor Extraordinaire: Roland Dille 

If this issue's professor per- 
sonality were a mystery, the 
"clues'" might be as follows: 
which CLC professor comes tear- 
ing out of the coffee shop, trots 
up the path, charges through the 
Beta Hall foyer' with blonde hair 
blowing, blue eyes sparkling, and 
a tie over his shoulder, at 50 
seconds to the hour? 

In the spotlight this edition 
is iProfessor Roland Dille the 
head of CLC's English Depart- 
ment, and teacher of both Fresh- 
man Composition and English Lit- 

Upon due reflection and con- 
centration, Mr. Dille disclosed 
that he was born on September 
16. 1924 in Dassel, Minnesota. (It 
is what one might call a "small 

His college career was spent 
at the University of Minnesota 
where he was editor of "Under- 
grad," the college's literary mag- 
azine, a member of the AJI-Uni- 
versity Council, and a member 
of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. 

In 1949 Mr. Dille graduated 
summa cum laude from the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota, where he 
was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. 
In the near future he will have 
his Ph.D. from the same univer- 

World War II inteirupted Mr. 
Dille's college life after his 
Freshman year. He served in the 
infantry for three years and 
traveled throughout France, Ger- 
many, and Austria. While sta- 
tioned in France he took some 
English courses at Biarritz Army 

In the line of employment? "I 
have done about everything there 
is to be done in working my way 
thi'ough college from being a 
private detective to being a truck- 
er's assistant. My job as a pri- 
vate detective was not really 
very interesting; I guarded 
burned houses and checked up

Mr. and Mrs. Dille met in Mr. 
Dille's home town when she was 
teaching high school there after 
the war. Mrs. Dille is a gradu- 
ate of Concordia College in 
Moorhead, Minnesota, and a 
teacher of Home Economics. 
They have four children — Deb- 
orah, 10; Martha, 7; Sarah, 6; 
and Benjamin, 20 months. 

After teaching at the Universi- 
ty of Minnesota for five years, 
Professor Dille was at St. Olaf 
from 1956-1961. There he taught 
freshman English and American 
and English literature. In 1961 
the student body voted him Pro- 
fessor of the Year. But he still 
insists, "My only lasting contribu- 
tion to academic Hfe at STO was 
the 'bed push'." 

In the course or his five years 
at St. Olaf, he was at one time 
the Director of Publicity. The 
lowest point of his publicity "ca- 
reer" was the appearance of a 
picture of St. Olaf students dem- 
onstrating for "freedom" on the 
front page of the "Daily Work- 

Mr. Dille left Minnesota to 
come to California after thirty- 
seven years in his home state 
because, ' 'It sounded exciting, 
and it has been. Also, I had to 
escape from the presidency of 
the Northfield PTA. California is 
a very beautiful madhouse. There 
is much good to be said about it, 
but I will leave that to those who 
are paid for such things." 

A staunch supporter of CLC's 
basketball team, Mr. Dille was 
seen at most of the home games. 
Besides all fornis of spectator 
sports, his other hobby is non- 

If he has looked a wee bit har- 
rowed and exhausted of late, it 
is because he is working on his 
dissertation on David Garnett

Ode to a Surfer 

Every morning at the surf you 
could see him arrive. 

He surfed ten ten foot waves and 
some 25. 

Sort of brown all over and blond 
at the top. 

Evei-yone knew no wave could 
stop— Big Blair. 

Big Blair, Big Blah-, Big Blond 

Somebody said he came from 
"Del Mar Beach" 

Where he got in a fight over a 
little peach, 

And a crashing blow from a 
huge surf board 

Sent a big hodaddy to the gates 
of the Lord— Big Blair. 

Now down on that beach Big 
Blair was lord 

And he could do anything with 
his board. 

He stroked a big wave and himg 
ten toes 

And made all the Grimies feel 
like crawling m holes— Big Blair. 

Then came a day down at the 

When a storm blew the surf to 
forty foot peaks, 

But everyone that came was too 

And there was only one going 
out that day— Big Blair. 

Through the spray and the mist 
of this watery hell 

Stroked a giant of a man that 
the surfers knew well. 

And with one more stroke he 
made it outside 

And just sat there smiling, 
waiting for his ride— Big Blair. 

Then with all of his strength he 
gave a mighty stroke. 

Then a surfer yelled out "Look 
a tidte wave broke". 

And Blair took gas and was 
lost in the wave. 

And all the surfers knew that 
they had to save— Big Blau". 

Then with all their boards they 
started back out 

Then came another wave out 
of the south 

And the foam and the spray 
crashed down on the beach 

And everyone knew it was 
too late to reach— Big Blair. 

Well they never surfed again 
where Blair went down 

They just stuck his old board 
into the ground 

And these few words were 
scribbled in the sand. 

"Once on tuese waves stroked 
a big boss man— Big Blair. 


Blood Bank Sloted 

Donations for CLC's first Blood 
Bank will be taken beginning 
April 12th. The Tri-Counties Blood 
Bank will set up a bloodmobile 
somewhere on the campus; the 
location will be decided upon at 
a later date. 

On February 18th members of 
the Freshman Class Standing 
Committee polled S0% of the stu- 
dent body; 70% were willing to 
donate blood if they were able. 
To determine eligibility, during 
the month of March, Standing 
Committee Members again asked 
the students if they would donate. 
The names of those who were 
willing were sent to the nurses 
office to be checked against the 
college medical records. Permis- 
sion slips will be sent to the par- 
ents of the students under 21 who 
are able to give their blood. 

Also asked to contribute were 
the members of the faculty. No 
figures were available on the 
number able to donate. 

The Blood Bank will be for the 
benefit of both the faculty and 
the student body in case of an 

Although the Freshmen Class 
is sponsoring the blood drive this 
year, in the future it will be a 
project of the Student Council.

CLC's diamond boys came 
through with a history making 
event on March 17. by defeating 
Biola College, in their first base- 
ball game of the season. It was 
aJso the first baseball game 
played in the history of CLC. 
That sturdy, "Moundman." Paul 
Carlson went all the way for the 
Lutheran's pitching brilliant ball 
for his first try. and coming out 
ahead 10-8. 

The team picked up another 
first in dressing room facilities 
also. As CLC's seventeen mem- 
ber team arrived they were

shown to a dressing itwrn about 
as large as one of the apartment 
bathrooms. It really was bad! 
Most of the team were getting 
pretty well situated until the Bi- 
ola team showed up, and wanted 
to dress in the same place. At 
least our Lutes picked up the win. 
The outstanding highlight of the 
day was the hitting of Bob Welv 
er. Bob has never played base- 
ball in his life, and knows ab- 
solutely nothing about America's 
favorite pastime. This yearling 
went 4-7 at the plate in his first 
crack at baseball. Keep it up

But, the Lutes hung on to eke

contest. The nitecap proved to 
be a different story as we lost 
it 7-2. 

Rightfielder Bob Weber got the 
history-making first hit as he 
singled up the middle in the 
opening fram. but was left strand- 
ed as none of his mates could 
advance him. After Fritz Ohlrich

fifth, bombed a shot to center

the tail- 
end and lead-off batters followed 
Carlson up by bashing out five 
straight hits, all singles. After 
shortstop Jim Huchtausen walk- 
ed, Fritz Ohlrich. up for his sec- 
ond time, singled to left. Carlson 
then came up and cleared the 
bases with a booming triple to 
right center. George Engdahl 
fanned for the second time in 
this eight run, eight hit inning 
to end it. 

Perhaps a little lax after a big 
inning CLC allowed Biola seven 
runs in their half of the second 
to knot the score at eight alL 
The only hit being a three-run 
homer by pitcher Kelly Segraves. 

The game then slowed down 
after these wild opening frames 
and both teams were held score- 
less until the Lutes were able to 
push across the winning and in- 
surance runs in their half of the 
sixth. Ohlrich and Carlson opened 
with singles and were pushed 
across by Engdahl's sacrifice and 
first sacker AI Arronson's field- 
er's choice. Carlson added a sin- 
gle in the seventh for a perfect 
day at the plate 4 for 4 (homer, 
triple, walk. 2 singles). These ac- 
tions can mark a good team. 
They settled down in the later 
innings, the defense became 
sharper, (especially in the in- 
field), outfielders knew what to 
do and when. This type of play 
wins pennants. Look at the

Vol. 1 


APRIL 1, 1962 



Not to be outdone by other 
prominent college newspapers 
around the nation who now and 
then at sometime or the other 
have pictures of queens of this 
nr that enhancing their front pag- 
es, the Echo staff In the not too 
distant past decided to hold a 
contest and select a pretty lady 
whose picture could decorate the 
fi-ont page of this important is- 
sue. That was the original deci- 
sion, However, the intellects on 
the staff, under the leadership of 
hitherto mild-mannered Richard 
Amrhein, while admittedly rec- 
ognizing the aesthetic merits of 

the scheme, hastily looked the 
situation over and theretofore 
raised an awful stink. 

Following that incident Am- 
rhein proposed the alternate plot 
of having a contest for the most 
intelligent looking girl. "This," 
he said, "would be especially ap- 
propo to the tone of the April 
issue of the Echo." 

Whereupon ultra mild man- 
nered Echo Editor, Jonny Staf- 
sholt said, "Oh crud (as opposed 
to whey) Amrhein. who do you 
think you are? Willie Stark or 

The hot discussion continued a 

minute until mild mannered Mike 
Robertson drew forth from his 
emaciated wallet a picture which 
he had been cherishing but con- 
sidered to relinquish for the good 
of the Echo. The breathtaking 
beauty and deep intelligence 
which radiated fi'om the girl in 
the picture convinced both fac- 
tions of the staff that this girl 
would be the winner. Hence, the 
contest was cancelled. 

The picture spoken of is printed 
at right. The name has been 
omitted to protect the staff from 

Mr* Joseph Thompson 
Honored by Students 

CLC students this past month 
presented their highest honor to 
Mr. Joseph Thompson. Assistant 
Manager of the CLC branch of 
the Profit Company Cafeteria. 
Mr. Thompson, better known as 

Don Meyer Saves 
Student Body 

Due to the strong loyalty for 
the best interests of the student 
body, displayed by Don Meyer, 
Sophomore Class President. Ar- 
ticle III of the recently ratified 
ASB Constitution was rejected. In 
a last-minute attempt to save the 
student body, Meyer's subordi- 
nates published and distributed 
a carefully prepared statement 
of facts about the innumerable 
bad points of the controversial 
Article III to all CLC students. 
The statement also mentioned all 
of the many student groups who 
were in opposition to the article. 

The notorious John McCune. 
Constitution Committee Chair- 
man, tried desperately to rail- 
road the article through, bjt 
thanks to the efforts of Don Mey- 
er, his feeble attempts were halt- 

"Joe" to the students, receiv- 
ed a large plaque thanking him 
for the wonderful working condi- 
tions provided for the student 
cafeteria workers, the excellent 
pay given to the students, the 
good equipment he obtained in 
order to provide the students 
with the best and cleanest dish- 
es possible, and the wonderful, 
humane treatment afforded his 

The plaque was presented to 
Mr. Thompson by two members 
of the CLC Honors Committee. 
One member, when asked why 
it was decided to present this 
honor to Mr. Thompson, replied: 
"Joe has been an integi-al part 
of the raising of the morale of 
the students. From the first 
nights of our haircut attempts. 
Joe has been constantly thought 
of by many CLC students. Be- 
cause Joe has played an impor- 
tant part in the unification of 
our student body, we gave him 
this honor." The plaque was 
proudly displayed from the top 
of the bell tower, awaiting Joe's 
arrival early one morning. Mr. 
Thompson seemed pleased when 
he saw it and modestly had it 
taken down. 

The 7-10 Corner 

By Mike Clobbertson 

As the notables in other school 
activities receive attention. I feel 
that the bowlers should also re- 
ceive credit. Perhaps the most 
unique team is the faculty one 
composed of Doc Fanvell, Miss 
Amundson, and Doc Hauessler. 
This last week Doc Farwell im- 
proved his scored immensely — 


At a recent Publications Com- 
mittee meeting. Dr. E. D. Far- 
well, chairman of the commit- 
tee, and Jonny Stnfsholt. Editor 
of the Mountclef Echo, united in 
firm agreement that editorial 
policies should 'be formulated 
from within the administration- 
controlled Publications Commit- 
tee. Stafsholt agreed that as Ed- 
itor, he should not take on the 
responsibilities of editing the 
newspaper upon his shoulders. 
"After all." he said, "it's what's 
best for the local merchants. 
who are free to place ads in the 
paper any way they choose, and 
lor the best interests of the ad- 
ministration and faculty and not 
the students that counts." Staf- 
sholt went on to say that "With- 
out the support of the local mer- 
chants and the 'suggestions' of 
the faculty and admnistration, 
the Echo would not be in the con- 
dition that it is now. 

he finally took the ball out of 
the bag. Nina Amundson showed 
everyone a new approach — she 
did the cha cha right up to the 
foul line. Doc Hauessler, an ar- 
dent baseball fan, also tried to 
demonstrate his new technique, 
especially his slide technique on 
the final step. However, it turned 
out to be a baseball slide. I'd 
turned around for a second, and 
when I looked back, the ball was 
sitting motionless at the foul line. 
Doc Haussler was sliding right 
toward the 1-3 pocket. Although 
he made a strike, I didn't see him 
until two frames later when the 
pinsetter placed him in the head 
pin .spot. What really put Doc 
Hauessler out of the game was 
the trip through the underground 
ball return. The most puzzled 
member of the team was Miss 
Amundson, who when she swung 
the ball into the back swing, 
couldn't find the ball when she 
brought her arm forward. Dennis 
Young, muttering something 
about his crush proof cigarette 
package being smashed end two 
broken ribs, returned the ball to 
the bewildered Miss Amundson. 
However, the most drastic step 
was taken by Doc Farwell. Try- 
ing for a strike {needed to break 
100» stated, "If I don't get this 
strike then I'll resign as Dean of 
CLC ■ . Appointment of a new 
Dean is still pending. 

Beer Drinking Boot^ 
Carnival Affraction 

One of the main attractions at 
the carnival was a beer drinking 
booth sponsored by Jerry Liebers- 
bach and Owen Miller. Tlie rule 
of the booth was to see how 
much a person could drink be- 
fore he dropped. It was a little 
difficult walking by the stand, 
without stepping on a body or 
encountering someone who was 
participating in the contest. 

The winner of the contest was 
Irving J. Krackelbein II. He 
drank the most and remained 
standing the longest. 


The professors, after finally 
becoming so discouraged at not 
having a bell, decided to take 
turns throwing rocks at the bell 
to announce the start or close 
of a class. 

The first attempt will be made 
Friday, by Mr. Dille. It is the 
hope of the student body that 
he suceeds in both hitting the 
bell and making it to class on

Did you know that the week 
of April 1-8 is "Be Kind to 
Dumb Animal Week"? Well, you 
uniniformed creature of fate, it 
is! There are many benevolent 
projects going on all over cam- 
pus to enlighten the lives and 
existence of the unfortunate 
"dears". Dr. Dahl's dogs are 
being shaded by umbrellas while 
supervising the bulldozing and 
gardening activities. It gets hot

Two pieces of bubble gum are

Chapel Speakers happy talk 

By Marcia Gnarlsthem 

Henry Miller, a well known 
"enlightened" author of our day 
spoke on astrology. Astrology is 
a field in which he is an expert; 
this is unknown to most people 
in light of his other more prom- 
inent achievements. He was in- 
vited to speak to our ASB by our 
own Mr. Dille. They met while 
Henry Miller was performing the 
social charity of telling horo- 
scopes among the Bohemians liv- 
ing on the left bank of the Seine

On the 
Social Side 

The hottest romance of the 
year came to an end Friday 
when Miss Mai-y Ellen Heian. 
dorm mother for Alpha Hall, dis- 
closed that she had returned her 
engagement ring to Mike Leon- 
ard. No reason was given for the 

Recently seen on campus to- 
gether were Demi and Champ 
the campus favorites. Both insist 
that the relationship is strictly 

CLC's missing bell was discov- 
ered buried in the field next to 
the campus. Also buried with the 
stolen bell was a beer can and 
a copy of the Standards Commit- 
tee Rules for Beta Hall. 

There has been much specula- 
tion among the students of CLC 
as to why the physical education 
classes are dancing this month. 
Last week the mystery was fi- 
nally solved. It seems that two 
of our P. E. teachers have more 
than the students' interest at 
heart. The students hope that the 
two will enjoy this month of to- 
getherness, and that a certain 
teacher's future plans won't be 

Mr. Roland Dille. English pro- 
fessor, recently announced that 
there will be an English faculty 
picnic at Malibu on June 16. All 
members of the English faculty 
are required to attend, and there 
are to be no outside guests. Any 
previous engagements are to be 

Mr. Joe Thompson, assistant 
manager of the cafeteria, an- 
nounced that he and Miss Rosa- 
lyn Braun will be married on 
April 1 in the kitchen of the cafe- 
teria. Mr. Kurt Redder will per- 
form the ceremony. The bride 
will be attired in lettuce leaves 
and tomatoes and the groom will 
wear hamburger steaks. 

Yesterday Paul Meyer was 
brought before the Standards 
Committee for improper conduct 
on campus. Paul was seen hold- 
ing hands with one of the girls. 
The committee voted to suspend 
Paul for the period of one week. 
The girl was also brought before 
the committee, but she was found 
to be only an innocent bystander 

Last week the Standards Com 
mittee held a room check of Miss 
Heian's apartment. As was ex- 
pected, she failed. The bed was 
unmade, the furniture was dusty, 
and the place was a general 
mess. In addition to the above 
all of the things that have been 
found missing from students 
rooms, were found. Also found 
were two ironing boards and four 
vacuum cleaners. 

Dr. Dahl Resigns 

Last week, Dr. Orville Dahl, 
first President of CLC. submitted 
his official resignation to the 
Board of Regents. 

Dr. Dahl, who has been at CLC 
since 1951. has seen brooder 
houses and orange groves turn 
into an impressive institution. He 
has seen the first buildings rise 
on the college site and has seen 
the first students arrive. He has 
seen California Lutheran College 
accepted as an accredited insti- 
tution by the Western College 

When asked why he was leav- 
ing. Dr. Dahl wistfully replied: 
"I feel the college is going to 
the dogs."

Ewing Appointed 
Handbook Editor 

The P*ublications Committee 
has announced the election of 
Bill Ewing as editor of the Stu- 
dent Handbook. The Handbook, 
which will describe all phases of 
campus life, will be ready for 
distribution at the beginning of 
next year. 

Ewing has named a staff of 
five section editors. They are 
John Wold, Tiff Barnard. Carole 
Golz, John Lundblad, and Roger 
Anderson. They will prepare the 
material for the several sections 
which will treat such areas as 
student government, history, reg- 
ulations, traditions, and social 

Adviser to the staff is Miss 
Heian, instructor of English. 

along with its supporting ensem- 
bles, will tour through next 

In addition to the main tour 
the current concert season in- 
cludes several other short trips. 
The Choir has already sung at 
Simi and Ventura, and will, upon 
its return, give concerts at Santa 
Bai-bara, San Diego, and Long 

On April 27 and 28, Friday and 
Saturday nights, the Choir will 
present its homecoming concerts 
for the student body and the lo- 
cal community at Holy Trinity 
Church adjacent to the campus. 

The California Lutheran Col- 
lege Choir finds itself a part of 
a long tradition, since touring Lu- 
theran choirs have been active 
for many years. This year, for 
instance, tile St. Olaf College 
Choir celebrates the fiftieth an- 

niversary of its first tour. Many 
of the college choirs have toured 
California, and theii- appearance 
here must receive some of the 
credit for the interest in Luther- 
an higher education that led to 
the founding of California Luther- 
an College. 

Despite this well-established 
tradition, however, the present 
tour will be unique. This unique- 
ness is indicated in the name of 
the traveling group, the Califor- 
nia Lutheran College Ensembles. 
The largest ensemble, and per- 
haps the center of the perform- 
ance, is the choral section, the 
35 voice choir directed by Mr. 
Zimmerman. But instead of a 
concert on which balance is 
achieved through groups of chor- 
al selections alone, the concert 
will aim at both variety and in- 
tegration through the use of sev- 

eral other enserrtjles. These in- 
clude the eight-member string en- 
semble and a quintette of flutists, 
who, in addition to presenting 
their own numbers, will play in 
combination with the choir. Also 
appearing as soloists will be Bet- 
ty Shirey Bowen, violinist and 
CLC orchestra oncert master; 
Walter Birkedahl, trumpeteer and 
CLC orchestra conductor; and 
Arthur Moorefielil, accompanist 
and member of !he CLC music 

The four members of the facul- 
ty who are making the trip will 
find themselves busy. In addition 
to the usual duties of chaperon- 
ing and to the |)arts they play 
in the concerts, t'ley will be con- 
ducting auditions for high school 
students who may be interested 
in coming to CL(.'. Plans are be- 
ing worked out f)r incorporating

Vacation Begins 

The long winter, snow and all, 
is ended, and the vacation that 
seemed as though it would never 
get here begins today. And the 
students are probably happy 
about it too. 

Most students will be spending 
the spring break at home in Cal- 
ifornia, but some will be going 
to far places where it is just 
starting to get green and will 
have the joy of living through a 
second muddv season. 

But this, too, will end. Abrupt- 
ly, on April 24. 

Linda Gulsrud and Kim Bodding are seen packing in 
preparation for the choir tour. Two students must share 

one suitcase. 

Summer School 
Plans Announced 

Plans are now being finalized 
for the 1962 Summer Session at 
CLC. The abbreviated session 
will begin June 18 and end July 
14. Registration will be held June 
15 and 16. Students presently en- 
rolled at CLC may register pre- 
vious to the end of the present 

Previous announcements of an 
eight-week session were changed 
following the results of a survey 
which indicated only fifteen stu- 
dents were interested in summer 
classes. Courses to be offered 
include Religion, English Litera- 
ture, Music, Art and Physical 
Education, The summer school 
faculty will consist of Professors 
Dille, Schwich, Kahnert, Kallas, 
Amundson, Birkedahl, Zimmer- 
man and Hendricks. 

In addition to the collegiate 
level program, the Creative Arts 
faculty will offer a workshop pro- 
gram for elementary and sec- 
ondary school children. The Phys- 
ical Education staff has proposed 
a parallel program in summer 
recreation. Dr. Luther Schwich 
and his associates have also out- 
lined a community recreation 
program in cooperation with the 
CVAC. Several CLC students are 
to supervise this program. Play- 
grounds at local elementary 
schools are to be utilized. 

As CLC grows into a four-year 
program and professional educa- 
tion courses are added to the 
curriculum, a full summer school 
program will be offered. Admin- 
istrative staff and faculty mem- 
bers will be handicapped this 
summer because of facilities. 
During the summer many facili- 
ties must be moved from present 
locations into the Centrum. 

Essay Contest Slatec^J 

An announcement has gone ofit 
to all CLC students inviting th^m 
to submit essaj's to a contest 
sponsored by tho Conejo Va'dey 
Board of Realtors. The es'iays 
will be written on the suVoect, 
"The Home is the Heart and 
Hope of America." A hundred 
dollar and a fifty dollar Savings 
Bond are offered as prizes. 

Essays are to be 1000 yords in 
length and are to be submitted 
to Mr. Roland Dille by May 1. 
The awards will be presented at 
a luncheon of the Boant of Real- 
tors on May 22.

The Echo Chamber 

Student Respotisihility and Freedom 

Much has been written and 
mucli more spoken about the 
freedom of American college stu- 
dents. Rules, regulations and ar- 
bitrary decisions of college ad- 
ministrators and faculty frequent- 
ly gall students to the point 
where vai'ious reactions ensue. 
The conference of Lutheran col- 
lege students at Wartburg Col- 
lege last week was evidence that 
Christian liberal arts colleges 
have not been exempt from such 

Controversy in itself is not 
necessarily injurious; in fact, it 
may be especially relevant to the 
purpose of higher education. 
However, any such debate should 
focus on the issues and be di- 
vorced from the ambitions of 
particular individuals. Most such 
controversies stem from a failure 
of communications, a lack of re- 
spect for the educational process, 
or immaturity. 

Freedom as a concept is es- 
sential to a liberal education. 
The development of critical facul- 
ties and a creative mind cannot 
be accomplished within an over 
restrictive or authoritarian envi- 
ronment. Christian higher educa- 
tion consists of much more than 
the accumulation of a collective 
body of data. It is also acquiring 
tJie discipline of careful judg- 
ment, an understanding of the 
scientific method, a piiilosophical 

conduct and a mature Christian 
faith. Frequently, adults become 
concerned with the content of the 
teaching in a Christian college 
because such teaching differs 
from their beliefs of the nature 
of God, their interpretation of 
Holy Scripture and their concepts 
of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 
If students are to develop a ma- 
ture faith that is their own, they 
must be challenged to think and 
they must be confronted by the 
truth which frees and unites men 
under the Gospel. 

Freedom in itself, however, is 
not enough. Men may be the most 
free in a totalitarian state be- 
cause they have no responsibili- 
ties — all decisions are made for 
them. Freedom cai-ries with it 
the responsibility to msike deci- 
sions and demands the necessary 
judgment to make wise decisions. 
College administrators and facul- 
ty members realize that students 
may make mistakes, but they are 
willing to assume such ri^s be- 
cause they know that the free- 
dom to err is the proper atmos- 
phere for the development of a 
mature person. On the other 
hand, students in making the de- 
cision to attend an institution of 
higher education must be willing 
to impose upon themselves a 
discipline of mature responsibili- 
ty if they are to be given the 
freedom so coveted in the aca- 
demic world. 

WhaVs in a Name? 

It is easy to find the idea of 

a traditions committee amusing. 
Traditions, we all know, aren't 
produced by committees. They 
are created out of our need to 
symbolize or ritualize experienc- 
es that affect us in some pro- 
found way. These rituals take the 
forms that best express the nature 
of our response to these mean- 
ingful experiences, and our rec- 
ognition of the rightness of the 
ritual act is far too complex to 
be expressed in discussion and 

Traditions develop naturally 
and spontaneously, and voting on 
them seems arbitraiy and arti- 
ficial. Nevertheless, some deci- 
ions must made, and is altogeth- 
er proper that the matter of a 
school name be decided by the 
first student body, which knows 
better than anyone else will ever 
know, the real spirit in which 
this college was begun. 

Still, we feel a little arbitrary. 
How can we choose a name that 
will reflect traditions that only 
time will give us? But time has 

already given us traditions; not 
the few months we have behind 
us, but all the years that came 
before. There is the tradition of 
faith. Can we find a name 
from ail those who witnessed 
to that faith, or fought for 
it, or were martyred for it? 
There is the tradition of learn- 
ing. Can we find a name from 
among the scliolars who found 
new truths or defended old, or 
in the myths and legends in which 
poets have celebrated human en- 
deavor? And there is the tradi- 
tion of pioneering, ours not be- 
cause in this year we began in 
this place, but because the west 
and the virgin valley symlwllze 
aspiration, man's determination 
"to strive, to seek, to find, and 
not to yield." Can we find a name 
fi'om among all those who, with 
hope and courage, came here or 
anywhere at all? 

These are our traditions. Who 
does not find his experience at 
California Lutheran College in 
harmony with this past will find 
something missing in himself, or 
in all of us.

Happy Talk 

Friday night entertainment! 
Some students read good books; 
some go to the movie; some go 
to Alpha Hall to hear Mr. Dille 
and Mr. Kallas sing their famous 
duet, "Is there is or is there 
ain't a crisis?" I guess it all de- 
pends on what you read, the Bi- 
bb or freshman themes. Or

that he was leaving the campus 
with a colleague one afternoon 
when both the Basque shepherds 
brought their sheep across Olson 
Road at the same time, blocking 
traffic. Whereupon the colleague 
said, "This is what happens when 
you put all your Basques in one 

.... Dr. Heussler objected to 
the plan to use the west forty for 
a nine-hole golf course, saying 
that he understood the land was 
to be used for Founders' Ceme-

be worked out. Plots can be set 

aside for the first nine faculty 
members who agree to be buried 
with their mouths open. 

.... Part of the movie "Wuther- 
ing Heights" was fibned in the 
eucalyptus grove over by the sta- 
bles. Since the movie was based 
on the most passionate love story 
ever written in English, perhaps 
the Traditions Committee could 
see that a bench is moved into 
the shadow of the grove, and all 
CLC engagements could be plight-

about having too many advisers

There is some misunderstanding 
about the advising system. It is 
not group therapy. And I wonder 

Zone's Trace 

By Zane 

For the Isist few months this 
column has been concerned with 
telling the story of the building 
of CLC. Maybe this would be a 
good time to forget the mortar 
and the bricks and to lift up our 
eyes unto the hills, to see just 
where we are. 

We can stand in the middle of 
the campus on any of these spring 
mornings and appreciate the 
beauty of the valley almost with- 
out thinking. With the air heavy 
now with the smell of orange 
blossoms, the hills greener than 
we can remember any hills to 
have been, the air purer and the 
sun brighter than sun and air in 
any other place, we can pretend 
for awhile to be natural man. 

There is, however, an enjoy- 
ment still more intense, and this 
enjoyment is related to what is 
happening inside the buildings, 
for, if we have learned anything 
about the world, if we are willing 
to let our minds join our senses 
in apprehending the view around 
us, we can see, from this little 
valley, a panorama that describes 
a good part of the long history 
of man. 

Beyond the hills, to the north 
and the south, lie the mountains, 
changeless in the memory of 
man, still impervious to the 
earthmover and the dynamite. 
Closer, on Mountclef, the flocks 
of sheep suggest an earlier time, 
and the Basque shepherds testi- 
fy to man's willingness to hold 
to those things that his exper- 
ience has made meaningful to 
him, for they are of a people 
who have resisted modernism in 
every century, who hold to a lan- 
guage and to customs that all 
the laws of cultural change in- 
sist should have disappeared 
hundreds of years ago. 

Nearer to us the orchai'ds show 
man's reverent stewardship of 
the earth, a blending of the love 
of the soil with the demands of 
commerce. -.—■^^■^mih^- 

And to the east, the tract hous- 
es that have come tumbling over 
the hills from Los Angeles, show 
that man's triumph over nature 
is not without its losses. They 
promise that the ugliness of the 
modem city will accompany the 
achievements of modern man. 

We turn with relief, as man has 
always turned, to the west. Here 
it would seem, is still the west 
of man's dreams, untouched and 
beautiful, and, in the early eve- 
ning, when there is still enough 
light to outline the hills and the 
mist rises from the ground, we 
would not be surprised to see a 
horseman ride out of the past 
and into the valley. And then we 
realize that we are looking at 
the best-known skyline in Amer- 
ica, that on almost any night 
millions of people turn their rest- 
less minds to the television set 
and watch reenacted before our 
hills the ancient dream of the 

But the dream has been cheap- 
ened into fantasy, as the west 
becomes on the flickering screen 
not the symbol of our expecta- 
tions but the palliative for our 
antagonisms. The myth has lost 
its substance. If the brave man 
who stands alone in the dusty 
street represents justice, he may 
also represent for us the allure- 
ments of action without the agony 
of thought. So that the legend in 
which he moves becomes as false 
in its way as the fake houses and 
the plastic trees that, in our 
darkness, look as real as the hills 
that lie beyond. 

If the world has become only 
the setting for our charades, we 
are but ill-equipped to resist the 
narrowing of life promised by the 
encroaching suburbs and the 
lights of Los Angeles ' 'flaring 
like a dreary dawn" beyond. 

about the girl who came out of 
a session with a big smile on 
her face, saying, "I won! I won!" 
I like the system, as long as 
it's run democratically, with dis- 
agreements between the student 
and the advisers settled by a sim- 
ple majority vote. 

Letters to the Editor 

Students have .so many claims 
upon their time and have so 
many things of value to take 
their attention that it may be 
presumptuous of me to ask them 
where they were a week ago Sun- 
day afternoon and evening. And 
yet I cannot help feeling bad 
about the smallness of the au- 
diences that listened to the mar- 
vellous concerts of the California 
Lutheran Orchestra. Certainly it 
must have been a disappointing 
day for two such talented and 
conscientious artists as the con- 
ductor, Walter Birkedahl, and the 
soloist, Betty Bowen, as well as 
for all the hard-worldng members 
of the orchestra. I do not think 

it is fully realized that the job 
that Mr. Birkedahl has done in 
preparing in a few short months 
an orchestra for public perform- 
ance would seem impossible if it 
had not been done. I do not be- 
lieve that any other person con- 
nected with the college has faced 
a more difficult problem this year 
or solved it more triumphantly. 
But the real tragedy is not that 
we have failed to honor with our 
interest someone who so much 
deserves it, but that we have lost 
an opportunity for the kind of 
enriching experience that we 
should all be eagerly seeking.

CLC Literary Review 

In tlie middle of our front door 
is a little lens through which I 
can see in full figure anyone who 
rings the door bell. Thus far the 
view has not been very exciting, 
our callers consisting mostly of 
men from water softener compa- 
nies, Mormon missionaries, and 
people wanting us to sign anti- 
communist petitions. But I'm 
happy with the device. Southern 
California being what it is. Be- 
fore I offend anyone who through 
parental error must call this 
home, I hasten to say that what- 
ever small reservations I have 
about this area come not from 
experience but from a fairly wide 
reading of crime stories. Among 
readers like myself Southern Cal- 
ifornia, especially Los Angeles, 
has. I'm afraid, a bad name, I 
came prepared for the worst, 
and, at night, when I have left 
the benevolence of the Pinkerton 
Company, I still expect it, al- 
though, except for the obvious 
fact that teams of gangsters are 
busy all night digging up Moor- 
park Road In order to bury their 
traitorous colleagues, TIfe has 
been pretty tame. 

So I am not yet ceitain wheth- 
er Los Angeles is the capital of 
fictional crime because it is in 
reality that bad or because writ- 
ers merely like to live here Ije- 
cause of the cUmate. For one 
kind of crime writer the beauti- 
ful girls of Hollywood, the fast 
cars, and the boozing provide the 
proper ingredients for violence 
and sex. 

But I am concerned \vith an- 
other kind of writer, the more 
or less serious writer for whom 
crime and the pursuit of the 
criminal are not an excuse for 
simple-minded adventure but a 
symbol of modem life. For these 
writers, though the criminal must 
be caught, guilt is not easily as- 
signed, and the clash between 
society and the criminal is not 

simply a conflict between good 
and evil but a revelation of the 
forces of evil that surround us 
all and touch most of us. The 
criminal becomes, then, not the 
evil man but the weak man, who 
would be any of us were it not 
for our large fears and small 
strengths. And the detective sees 
himself not as the arm of right- 
eousness but as the brother of 
the hunted, threatened by the 
same dark forces, having the 
same enemies, to which one 
yields and one does not. 

Of these serious detective writ- 
ers, only Jack Webb, in his 
stories of a Catholic priest and a 
Jewish detective, sees evil in re- 
ligious terms, but all of them 
write out of the Christian tradi- 
tion of good-and-evil. 

The best of them, Raymond 
Chandler, now dead, and Ross 
MacDonald, a reformed English 
professor, find evil in the social 
environment. Their concern for 
the texture of life in this part of 
the world does not, however, pre- 
vent them from mahlng a moral 
judgment. And in their novels 
Los Angeles has become, with 
its temptations to dishonesty, its 
invitation to selfishness, it em- 
phasis on pleasure, a symbol of 
a world in which dignity and love 
are always threatened, in which 
the good man must always fight 
to hold back the dark forces that 
too much attract him. 

You may learn more about Los 
Angeles in "Sunset" magazine 
but if some night when you are 
tired or some day when you are 
lazy you want to mLx your en- 
tertainment with an easy lesson 
about life, you might do woi-se 
than Webb, Chandler, and Mac- 
Donald. I recommend them to 
you, but only after you have read 
that other, and greater, crime 
story, "The Brothers Karama-

.... Pastor Quentin Garman of 
Christ Lutheran Church in San 
Diego said that we are too much 
concerned with what we cannot 
believe about God and too little 
concerned with what we can be- 
Heve. It is not a question so much 
of what we believe as in whom. 
For students he suggested that 
they should learn to live in the 
sacrament of friendship, to learn 
to live without envy, rejoicing 
with their friends over their 
achievements. In our Christian 
lives we need to see ourselves 
as bearing fruit for Christ. Jesus 
never said that his way was easy, 
but underscored the difficulties. 
.... Pastor Franklin Schott of 
the ULC church in La Canada 
said that it is easy to see our 
energies taxed to the utmost, and 
that we sometimes feel ourselves 
losing our balance. In such times 
we reach out for a handle by 
which to stabilize ourselves. 
Some of the handles that tempt 
us do not really have much to 
offer us, but if we reach for the 
hand of God's love extended by 
Christ we will find the peace and 
security that no other thing can 

give us. Though we should not 
expect the way to be smooth, 
we can find the courage and 
strength and grace to endure all 

that life has in store for us. 
. ... In student assembly Fred 
Stannard, editor of the local 
"Chronicle," spoke on the need to 
keep ourselves informed. He rec- 
ommended that we use newspa- 
pers, magazines, and radio and 
television to give ourselves the 
kind of information that will al- 
low us to be better citizens, to 
do our jobs better, and to give 
us the sheer joy that comes from 
learning. Even with an interest 
in these mass media, he warned, 
we can not be certain that we 
know as much as we need to 
know about what is going on in 
the world. Unless we are lucky 
enough to have one of the great 
newspapers available to us, we 
never get the full picture. He 
suggested that when we read the 
news we should keep asking, crit- 
ical questions, asking what is left 
out. so that we do not think that 
we have learned more than we

Traveler and Scholar: Wolfgang Weilgart ^'^'^ ^^^"^ ^^^^^^ /^^ ^^r ii 

9 9 9 The Frosh Prom rommittee has has eiven them, horrow a tip a 

When, in 1939, Wolfgang Weil- 
gart slipped over the border from 
Hitler's Germany into Holland, 
he left behind him his parents 
and his belongings but he carried 
with him a proud family Iteritage 
and a remarkable education. 

Holland was the first step to- 
ward California where a post- 
doctoral fellowship awaited hun. 
ITiomas Mann, the great German 
writer then in exile in America, 
had been invited to name a young 
German scholar to a fellowship. 
Mann had been impressed by a 
recent book of poetry published 
by Weilgart and knowing the 
young poet's scholarly back- 
ground and his struggle with the 
Nazis, picked him for the honor. 

The voyage from the Old World 
to the New, from what Dr. Weil- 
gart has called, "the world of the 
past" to "the world of the fu- 
ture," did not change the tempo 
of his life, for Dr. Weilgart rep- 
resents as well as anyone, the, 
unfortunately, loo common figure, 
the man of idea trapped in the 
world of action, the scholar dedi- 
cated to study and contemplation 
but caught up in the upheaval 
of twentieth century life. 

That life began for Wolfgang 
Weilgart in the Palace of Schon- 
brunn in Vienna, seat of the an- 
cient empire of the Hapsburgs, 
in whose court his father was 
Counselor of Art. He was also 
the director of the Vienna Art 
Mueum, in effect ruler of the 
Arts in Austria, and an authority 
on Durer and Michelangelo. His 

mother was a well-known artist 
whose lithographs decorate the 
walls of the Weilgarts' apartment 
and whose work is hung in the 
British Museum and the Libraria 
in Rome. This interest in art ex- 
tended to the children. Dr. Weil- 
gart's sister is Director of Swe- 
dish Church Art and his classes 
know his own ability with chalk 
and blackboard. 

The first World War ended the 
Hapsburg dynasty after 600 years 
and in the turmoil that attended 
the defeat Weilgart and his sister 
were taken to Switzerland by 
their uncle. Richard Neutra. who 
was to become one of the great 
influences on modem architec- 

Dr. Weilgart returned to Aus- 
tria and to his education, gi-adu- 
ating from college with honors 
in every field in which he studied, 
and continuing on in graduate 
work at the University of Vien- 
na, from which both his parents 
and his sister had received their 
doctorates. He received his Ph.D. 
in philology and philosophy in 
1939, submitting a dissertation en- 
titled "Creation and Contempla- 
tion," a study of the psychology 
of the artist-mystic which was 
also a defence of the ideal of 
contemplation against the Nazi 
call to action. By 1939 Austria 
was a part of Hitler's state and 
Weilgart feared that he would be 
sent to France, ostensibly as a 
scholar but actually as a spy.

eve of the second World War

solved his problem. At California 
he began work on his book 
"Shakespeare Psychognostic," a 
study of character transformation 
in Shakespeare's plays. Then fol- 
lowed nine years of teaching lan- 
guages and philosophy at Port- 
land University, Mills College, 
and Xavier University. 

Dr. Weilgart's academic career 
was interrupted by the Korean 
War during which he was at- 
tached to the Far East Command 
in the psychological warfare di- 
vision. As the American army 
was a part of the United Nations 
command, he was shifted to duty 
as a roving psychotherapist and 
researcher for the U.N., travel- 
ing through all of Europe and 
North Africa and comparing psy- 
chological reactions in different 
cultures, using among other tech- 
niques, the Weilgart Rhyme test. 
Out of this experience came his 
book, "What Is Normal in the 
Atomic Age?" While in Europe 
he also continued his post-doctor- 
al study and was awarded his 
"diplomat- psychologist" from the 
University of Heidell>erg. 

Of his many experiences during 
these years, he and his wife, 
Anni, recalled the most impor- 
tant one last week as they talked 
in their apartment on the fifth 
anniversary of their wedding. En- 
tering a school in Volkratshofen, 
Bavaria, where arrangements had 
been made for him to carry out 
some testing, Dr. Weilgart heard 
a teacher singing "Sleeping Beau- 
ty" to her class. A headline in 
the local newspaper a few months 
later read, "We Part with Heavy 
Hearts from Our Teacher." She 
now sings to two dark-haired 
daughters: Andrea, almost four, 
and Linda, 16 months. 

After he left the United Nations 
in 1958, Dr. Weilgart served as 
assistant dean of psychological 
services of the Salvation Army 
dealing with delinquents, der- 
elicts, and alcoholics. He came 
to CLC last fall in pai-t because 
he, whose education had been in 
centuries-old universities, was 
fascinated by the idea of a school 
without traditions to defend. 

Currently Dr. Weilgart is work- 
ing on a book called "Man of 
the Future," in which he specu- 
lates on the psychological make- 
up of future man. He has pub- 
lished widely, in scholarly peri- 
odicals both here and abroad. 
And he pursues his hobby of 
lingiustics. To the 18 languages 
he knows he has added another 
of his own invention. He calls 
this language the language of 
psychotherapy or the language of 
space and has taught it to primi- 
tive tribes in a few hours. 

Traditions Committee 

Moves on College 


With almost a full school year 
behind it, the Traditions Commit- 
tee has decided that it is time 
to move ahead with the selection 
of a college nickname. It asks 
that the members of the student 
body and the faculty give ser- 
ious consideration over the vaca- 
tion to this selection. 

When school resumes after 
Easter, a suggestion box will be 
placed in the cafeteria. Anyone 
with a name to propose is in- 
vited to place it in the box. The 
proposals will be collected on 
May 9 and on May 10. The elec- 
tion procedure will be described 
in student assembly. Voting will 
start on May 14, with the num- 
ber of proposals gradually re- 
duced until the final election, 
when a choice will be made from 
three names. The winning name 
will be announced at the end of 
May, and will be submitted to 
the Board of Regents for approv- 

Students and faculty members 
who wish to submit names are 
asked to consider carefully the 
question of appropriateness, since 
the school name should symboUzc 
some important aspect of the col- 
lege, reflecting the aims, the as- 
pirations, or the location of CLC. 

The Frosh Prom committee has 
almost completed plans for the 
big spring affair to be held the 
night of May 1. The evening is 
being planned in honor of CLC 
upper classmen, sophomores, 
that ifl. 

Bill Ewing. general chairman 
of the event, has announced that 
music will be furnished by Fi-ed 
Falanbees orchestra. Tickets 
have been on sale this week and 
the sale will continue for a week 
after vacation. Tickets are $5 a 
couple for freshmen and $4.50 for 

Eighty couples are expected 
for the Prom, which will mark 
the high point of the somewhat 
slow social season. Ewing's hope, 
echoed by numberless girls in 
Alpha Hall, is that numberless 
boys in Alpha Hall will put down 
their books for once, conquer 
whatever fears life in California 

Social Committee 

Plans College Luau 

CLC students will give a late 
welcome to spring after the vaca- 
tion break in a Hawaiian-type 
picnic planned by the Social 
Committee. The luau has been 
planned for Saturday. May 5th 
after classes resume, and it will 
include not only a dinner made 
up of the traditional island dish- 
es, but a good deal of fun and 
excitement as well. 

Along with the coconuts, the 
pineapples, and the exotic foods 
with unpronounceable names, 
there will be roast pig. A pit will 
be dug and the porker will be 
barbecued in the open air. Be- 
cause of the variety of foods that 
will be served and the leisurely 
mode of eating, dinner hours will 
be extended probably to the hours 
of from 4:30 to 7. 

The luau will, of course, be 
served outside and will be eaten 
around the pool. During the hours 
of eating, special entertainment 
will be presented, with special 
emphasis on native dances and 
the uke. 

Although the social committee 
is planning the luau. the sugges- 
tion originated with the Prophet 
Company and is only one of a 
number of special meals that 
they have put on at the college.

a ffirl. and get with it. 

Dean Farwell has not as yet 
announced any change in the 
seminar scheduled for that eve- 
ning. This crisis, if the faculty 
will agree that is exists, will be 
solved later. 

Yearbook Sets 

Date for 
Student Photos 

Verilis Miller and John Mc- 
Cune, editors of the CLC year- 
book, still untitled, have an- 
nounced that a contract has been 
signed with Crowley and Smith, 
Sherman Oaks photographers, to 
take student portraits and ac- 
tivity pictures. 

Photographing of students will 
begin immediately after Easter 
and will continue for three weeks. 
During this time students will be 
asked to make appointments for 
sittings. Plans are being worked 
out for uniform dress. All stu- 
dents are asked to cooperate : 
there will be no charge to indi- 
vidual students and they will be 
provided with several proofs in 
case they wish to order pictures 
for themselves. 

In addition to taking individual 
student pictures, Ci-owley and 
Smith will also take pictures of 
the faculty and of the various 
activity groups on campus. Rich- 
ard Amrhein, picture editor, is 
setting up a schedule for his 

Crowley and Smith have had 
extensive experience in yearbook 
pictures. The staff looked at a 
number of books for which they 
had done the work and were im- 
pressed by the high quality. 

In this first attempt at putting 
out a yearbook the editors have 
been faced with a number of 
problems, many of which are not 
yet solved. It was felt that the 
first yeai- of CLC should be re; 
corded in full and so the work 
will not be completed until after 
school is out,

'It Could Be Worse' Says Old Settler 

Two wftfks ago the powerful 

California Lutherans splashed 
hits all over the seaside to down 
Point Mugu 11-0. Major league 
scouts filled the grandstand, and 
they were awed by the young 
talent put on display by Coach 
Schwich. That fearless faculty 
leader is again assembling a 
group of harmless young students 
into an awesome combine. La 
Verne is already quaking at the 
thought of a return engagement, 
and a special match with South- 
ern California is now being de- 
manded by the Los Angeles pub- 
lic. Here is a team with four 
pitchers in the infield, catchers 
in the outfield and a renowned 
journalist behind the plate. The 
first baseman wears shinguards 
even though his infielders are 
given the use of the pitching ma- 
chine to make their throws across 
the diamond. The stern-jawed 
manager keeps the count for his 
hitters and coach Farwell tries 
hard to keep administrative con- 
trol along first. He has men 
picked off all the time, but that 
is not a coaching fault. The kids 
just don't know that the pitcher 
is allowed to throw it over to 

first. It's a matter of education 
and next year's squad will be 
that much tougher. Schwich re- 
minds them of these basic princi- 
ples all the time and, good stu- 
dents that they are, it will some- 
day become a reflex action. Such 
highly touted faculty stars as 
speedy Jim Kallas and long John 
Kahnert are itching to contribute 
their wares but the Schwichmen 
respect the principle of the game 
and try to give the opponent a 
competitive opportunity. The 
massed student cheering sections 
specialize in bubble game stunts 
and everybody has a popping, 
sticky good time. The "eat-em- 
up" hog call is especially barbar- 
ic through such Wrigley filament 
and the players appreciate the 
refreshing spray from the stands. 
These massed student turn-outs 
virtually intimidate the enemy, 
and Coach Schwich only has to 
stand up every now and then. 
That, of course, is the coup de 
grace for all umpires and opposi- 
tion. And one of these days we 
will pitch Jumbo Paul, and I 
imagine the league will concel 
out the rest of the schedule. He 
is a nice man, but the ball is 

rather small and hard to control. 
All in all it is another great cam- 
paign and we are once again 
showing that it can be done with 
just a handful. Pretty soon the 
faculty families will grow up and 
then the golden days of Califor- 
nia Lutheran will have arrived. 
But 1962 is the epic year for the 
nonce (sounds almost like a spell- 
ing booboo, doesn't it?) And I 
know who has a baseball auto- 
graphed by our great crew, and 
their names are forever immor- 
tal. I have to go now because 
our own great editor is complain- 
ing about false and maudlin sen- 
timentality. But baseball teams 
have moved me that way ever 
since I read "Jack Armstrong" 
and "Thatcher of Yale." I think 
he is a little jealous of my liter- 
ary background.

Field Takes Shape 

The athletic field is taking 
shape beyond Olson Road. Al- 
though the new field will not be 
ready for use this year, next fall 
should find the project completed 
in time for the beginning of the 
expanded sports program. 

With the baseball field, the 
football field, and the track all 
going in together, the workmen 
must proceed slowly, as the work 
must be continually checked 
against the specifications. 

Millions of Americans watch 
baseball every year. From Yan- 
kee Stadium to Chavez Ravine, 
our fellow citizens endure hours 
of incredible traffic and pay real 
money for a chance to second- 
guess a manager whose annual 
salary would take care of the en- 
tire CLC payroll. 

But on the campuses of Amer- 
ica, few students will take the 
few minutes to walk to the dia- 
mond, flash their activities pass, 
and sit down to cheer on their 
classmates. I remember sitting 
in the stands watching a college 
team that was to win the nation- 
al championship and finding that 
there were present more major 
league scouts than lliere were 
students. I'm afraid that on our 
campuses in the spring the only 
ones thinking about diamonds are 
those who have been thinking 
about them all year — the coeds. 

CLC, with the kind of imagijia- 
tion that we have come to re- 
gard as typical, has solved the 
problem of small home crowds 
by playing all games away from 
home. This eliminates a lot of 
things, notably the chance to win 
a ball game in the last half of 
the ninth. It may eliminate base- 
ball itself, since the only thing 
duller than a freshman theme is 
an oral account of a baseball 
game. Even "Casey at the Bat"

grows a little tedious by the final 
quatrain, and it recounts only 
one-third of one half inning. 

I'd like to see some home 
games. I realize that the new 
field lacks sod, but so do most 
of our front yards. And how 
about the practice field. True, 
the orange groves are a little 
close and the CLC players might- 
get lost (in the daylight). Think 
of the fly balls. I remember a 
player who got three lemons his 
first trip. But come to think of 
it, that was a different game, and 
I don't think we allow it here. 

I hate to think that CLC stu- 
dents are too soft, from eating 
too many delicacies or whatever, 
to play on anything but a regula- 
tion field. Most of the faculty 
learned how to play ball in pas- 
tures. And that worked fine, al- 
though I still remember the time 
I slid into what I thought was 
third base. 

Baseball Team 

Meets Varying 


Fritz Ohlrich's bases-loaded 
triple paced CaUfomia Lutheran 
to an 11 to win over the Navy 
team from Point Mugu. The 
Lutes' other big blow was Paul 
Carlson's triple with one man on. 

In probably its best effort of 
the season the CLC team backed 
up pitcher Al Aronson, who al- 
lowed only six hits. CLC played 
errorless ball and everyone in the 
line-up had at least one hit as 
the team reached two Sailor 
pitchers for a total of 13 blows. 

Chapman College of Orange 
County put CLC on the losing 
track in the next game by the 
lop-sided niai*g:in of 14 to 2. Lack 
of control on the part of CLC 
pitchers played a big part in the 
loss, although Chapman's 10 hits 
doubled the Lutes' total. 

Al Aronson started on the 
mound and was touched for three 
hits and a decisive five runs in 
the very first stanza. He survived 
the second inning without pain, 
but after Chapman got to him 
for two more runs in the third, 
Jack Knisely came on to retire 
the side. 

After Knisely filled the bases 
on walks in the fifth, they went 
on for six big runs. Long Jim 
Huchthausen relieved for the 
rest of the game. 

Ohlrich led CLC at the plate 
with two hits in two official times 
at bat, including his second triple 
in two games. The triple led to 
the second run as Ohlrich scored 
on a Chapman error in the third 
inning. In the second inning 
Stolee singled and came home on 
a long single by Knisely. 

Last week's split gives CLC a 
record of two wins and tliree 
losses for the season.

Student Body Elects New Officers 

A quiet enthusiasm accompan- 
ied CLC's student elections for 
the 1962-63 school year. On Thurs- 
day, May 3, for primary cam- 
paign speeches for AWS and 
AMS officers as well as student 
body officers were given during 
student assembly. P*rimary elec- 
tions were held on Friday, May 
4. As the Echo goes to press, 
final elections on May 8 have not 
yet been held. 

The candidates for student bo- 
dy treasurer were Roger Ander- 
son, Bill Durfey and Wayne Wil- 
son. Bill and Wayne were select- 
ed as finalists. 

Running for student body sec- 
retary were Mary Alice Gunning, 
Nancy Hayworth, Jan Huchins, 
Brian McConnell and Judi Schott. 
The finalists were Mary Alice, 
Jan, and Brian. 

The candidate list for vice 
president included Ken Culp, Bill 
Ewing, Tom Langehaug, John 
Lundblad, Lupe Martinez, and 
Warren Taylor. Those selected 
were Ken, Bill, and John. 

Sophomore Don Meyer ran un- 
opposed for student body presi- 
dent. Bill Harrison's write-in 
candidacy did not alter Don's 

Smiles of victory are seen on the faces of the recently 

elected: AMS President, Chuck Coon; AWS President, 

Lou Ellen Sampson; and ASB President, Don Meyer. 

In the Associated Men Student 
elections, 0inclt Coon ran un- 
opposed for president and Chuck 
Pederson unopposed for Secre- 
tary Treasurer. The vice presi- 
dential candidates were Gary 
Cockrell, Otis Kline, and Bob 
Weber. Gary and Bob were se- 
lected for the finals. 

Lou Ellen Sampson will be 
president of CLC's Associated 
Women Students She also ran 
unopposed for the office. Run- 
ning for vice president were Mi- 
riam Bloomquist and Nancy 
Westburg. Nancy was elected. 
Ruth Johnson, Mary Jurgenson 
and Janie Tetterington were the 
candidates for Secretary-Treas- 
urer. Ruth and Mary are the fi- 
nalists. The AWS next year will 
include two women's dorms. The 
AWS and AMS vice presidents 
will head the standards commit- 
tee. AWS and AMS presidents 
will serve on the student council 
along with the student body offi- 

According to election commit- 
tee chairman, Ann Jolly, about 
230 students voted in the pri- 
mary elections. This is 90 per- 
cent of the eligible students. 

New student body president Don 
Mayer comes from Van Nuys. 
He succeeds out-going president 
Paul Carlson. Don attended Pa- 
cific Lutheran University in his 
freshman year and was active 
in student government there.

Perhaps Dr. Weilgart's advo- 
cation of elections without cam- 
paigning has had some effect on 
the student body. Ot, more Hkely 
students are all just weary of 
elections altogether. The May 
elections are the third set of all- 
school elections this year. Elec- 
tions were held in the fall for 
this year's officers, and the resig- 
nations of student body presi- 
dent, vice president and treasu- 
rer necessitated more elections at 

the semester. Add to that dorm 
elections plus two or three vot- 
ings on the constitution of the 
student body — it makes for a 
weary grind at the end in spite 
of the hard work of the election

Orange County 

Elephant Race 

Has CLC Entree 

Today at four o'clock, the an- 
nual college elephant race will 
be held at Orange County State 
College in Fullerton. Participat- 
ing in the contest will be such 
colleges as California Institute 
of Technology, California State 
Polytechnic College, Chapman 
College, Fullerton Junior Col- 
lege, Santa Monica Gty College. 
Long Beach State College, Har- 
vard University, and the favored 
winner. California Lutheran Col- 
lege, use, UCLA, Yale, and the 
University of Washington are 
probable contenders also. 

The officers of the CLC Ele- 
phant Racing Society are: Kar- 
sten Lundring, President; Stu 
Major. Vice-President; Wayne 
Wilson, Treasurer; and Nick Mal- 
las. Secretary. The four officers 
brought an elephant out to CLC 

to "introduce him to the college 
ideals and show him what he will 
be running for." 

The CLC Elephant Racing So- 
ciety recently changed their mind 
about entering a real elephant. 
Instead, CLC's entree will be a 
550 - pound elephant tortoise. 
President Lundring replied that 
he feels CLC's chances of win- 
ning will be augmented consid- 
erably with the new entree. 

At any rate, California Luther- 
an College is going to soon have 
a prominent place in the eyes 
of all elephant racing enthusi- 

serving. The excellent meal pre- 
pared by executive chef Jules 
Gunner, chef James Dresback, 
Kurt Pedder, Joe Thompson, and 
Vem Davenport consisted of rice 
cakes, baked yams, fruit lalad, 

shrimp salad, sweet sour spare 
ribs, pineapple upside down 
cake, passion fruit punch, and 
assorted fresh fruits. 

Eating while reclining around 

the pool was a welcome change 
of pace, and everyone enjoyed 
himself, even those who got 
slightly damp during the course 
of the meal. 

Special thanks are in order for 
the Prophet Company, Margaret 
Stichter, and others who worked 
on the decorations and planning 
committees. The students are 
looking forward to another luau 
next year.

The Echo Chamber 

The College That ''Poofed" Out 

Once upon a time there was a 
small college nestled snugly in 
a beautilul valley full of pictu- 
resque orange and oak trees. The 
college came into being with a 
loud "bang", and it grew and 
grew. Tlie students had a terri- 
fic interest in all the intricacies 
of student govei'nment, publica- 
tions, athletics, and all extra- 
curricular activities. It was a 
truly active student body. 

Then one day. without anybody 
suspecting, a dark shadow pass- 
ed over the college and the great 
interest and activity of the stu- 
dents began dwindling, getting 
lesser and lesser. Then it was 
no more. Oh, there were at- 
tempts by a few students to re- 
kindle the flame ol student In- 
terest again. Some even went 
around gathering funds to enter 
an elephant race. However, this 
and other attempts were all to 
no avail. 

Then it was time to vote for 
new student body officers at the 
college. There were ton offices 
open. In four of these, there was 
only one person running. It seems coming fall semester will start 

sibilities of publishing the news- 
paper rested with a small few. 

Student interest was nil in all 
extra-curricular activities. 

The story goes on to tell us 
tliat soon there were no athletic 
teams, no choir and orchestra, 
no student newspaper and year- 
book, no student government 
(rules became established en- 
tirely through the administra- 
tion and faculty), no commit- 
tees to plan social events, no 
clubs or other organizations, and 
pretty soon — no students.

Dear readers, the story you 
have just read did not happen — 
yet! However, the gloomy pages 
of such a history are gradually 
unfolding here on our own CLC 
campus. The general feeling of 
the students, a kind of cross be- 
tween apathy and malice, is like 
a disastrous pestilence; it is fatal 
and it spreads quickly. This aca- 
demic yeai" is almost over, and 
if this student attitude is not cor- 
rected over the summer, the 

that not enough students were 
interested sufficiently to take an 
active part in student govern- 
ment. • ' 

The student newspaper that 
had once maintained a staff of 
over 30 people gradually dwind- 
led in size. Towards the end of

last gasp of a dying man's 
choking breath. 

Students, let's examine our- 
selves and make the needed cor- 
rections. Perhaps, it's not too 
late to start right now to brmg 
about an active student body

Operatic Puppet Show Meets 
Varied Student Opinion 

By Linda Rawsoa 

On Monday, April 30, Alpha 
Hall patio was turned into a 
puppet show and revue theatre 
by "Three from Turnabout." 
These three; Harry Burnett, pup- 
peteer, Dorothy Neumamn, ac- 
tress, and Forman Brown, writ- 
er, put on one of the most dis- 
gusting programs that has been 
seen at CLC. 

This program consisted of a 
vulgar puppet show, which fea- 
tured a dog singing about love 
and spring, a skit entitled "Alad- 
din and his Vamp," Calvin Ca- 
mel singing about Palm Springs, 
and numerous other acts. For 
the most part the puppets used 
were hideous, the manipulation 
of the puppets merely adequate, 
and the singing atrocious. 

The next part of the program, 
the revue, was not much better 
than the puppet show although 
the acts didn't have the vulgar- 
ity that the puppet show did. 
Dorothy Neumann and Harry 

Burnett's singing skits were quite 
enjoyable even though the music 
had a lot to be desired in some 
spots. Miss Neumann's mono- 
logues could have been very good 
had she not been so over drama- 
tic, and the two really good 
things in the revue were Mr. 
Brown's "Old Mother Hubbard" 
and Mr. Burnett's "The Last 

Despite the quality of the en- 
tertainment and the cold wea- 
ther, a good time was had by all 
who attended. 

For the past few days work- 
men have been turning the green 
south of Kramer Court into an 
opera theater, where the Pacific 
West Coast Opera Company will 
present Puccini's "La Boheme" 
on Wednesday evening, May 16th. 

This will be the last event in 
the CLC Concert Series. All stu- 
dents are ui'ged to attend this 

Zone's Trace 

By Zane 

Several weeks have gone by 
since the last issue of the Mount- 
clef Echo was published. In that 
time, several significant changes 
have taken place on the south 

Of paramount importance to 
the students, the Mountclef Inn 
is now under construction. The 
contract was awarded to Sam- 
uelson Brothers of Glendale, the 
contractors for the remainder of 
the centrum. The motel, cafe- 
teria, and library are expected to 
be completed by mid-August. 

The mall between Regents 
Court and the Pederson home is 
being landscaped and should 
soon be paved. A 55-foot flagpole 
has been erected at the steps 
and two 33-foot poles on each 

Since construction has pro- 
gressed quite rapidly, it is per- 
haps time to give another run- 
down on the building program 
at the Centrum. Only additions 
since vol. 1, no. 9 are indicated. 

Building A (bank)— Vault com- 
pleted, power conduit in , and 
gravel in for floor. 

Building B (cleaners, tailor, 
shoe repair, and post office) — 
Structural steel, power conduit, 
and floor in. 

Building C-E complex (libra- 
ry) — All power conduit in, 
walls completed, structural steel 
in, and floors completed. Forms 
have been erected for the roof 
and the concrete should be pour- 
ed early next week. Three days 
thereafter, the forms may be re- 
moved and erected on another 
building. After four weeks the 
supports may be removed and 
the roof will be self-supporting. 

Building D (florist, barber 
shop, and sporting goods) — Po- 
wer conduit in, walls and floor 

Building F (book store) — Air 
conditioning ducts in, plumbing 
in, foundation is being complet- 

Building G (cafeteria) — All 
first story walls completed and 
all ground floor sewers in. Sec- 
ond story structural steel is in 
and the second story floor has 
been poured. Power conduit is in 
in both floors. Second story 
walls should soon begin to rise. 

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

I understand that the general 
opinion on campus is that the 
choir can be called on anytime 
to perfoiTn, I think this is not 
only unfair but unreasonable. The 
choir has worked unusually hard 
on this tour. They have received 
the plaudits of every group for 
which they have performed. Why 
should they then be called on 
simply because nobody has tried 
hard enough to find other talent? 
I think using the choir as a last 
resort is very degrading to the 
dignity of this group. Yet this 
has happened so many times 
that they should be used to it 
by now. I think the choir should 
be given a standing ovation for 
the wonderful job they have done 
in giving last minute concerts. 
Carol Schultt 
EDITOR'S NOTE — Apparently 
better judgement should be ex- 
ercized among certain individu- 

als who are expecting choir 

members to be ready to cancel 

previous engagements and' be 

ready to pack up and go on tour 

or give a home performance at a 

moment's notice. RegEirdless of 
whether a concert is scheduled 
long in advance or just on the 
spur of the moment, students of 
the choir are overworked. Giv- 
ing a concert often necessitates 
skipping academic classes on the 
part of the choir members, and 
often members have been coerced 
into skipping three consecutive 
hours of the same class. This 
shows gross negligence on the 
part of some men of authority. 
Unless a promise of adequate cor- 
rection is put in order, next year's 
choir will be composed entirely of 
unknowning freshman, and the 
talents of the present choir mem- 
bers will be expended in other, 
more important, area*. 

CLC Literary Review 

By Terry 

The other day, as I entered 
the local drug store, a book on 
the paper-back stand caught my 
eye. It was entiUed, "Student." 
I thought it might contain some- 
thing of personal interest, I pick- 
ed it up. scanned the contents, 
rushed home, kicked off my 
shoes and read it. I finished and 
re-read it, underlining as I went. 
The book is written by David 
Horowitz, teaching assistant at 
the Berkeley campus of the Uni- 
versity of California, and con- 
cerns itself with ideas clearly 
controversial; the question of 
compulsory ROTC, the HUAC, 
the San Francisco "riot", the 
film "Operation AboHtion," and 
more. Though this institution is 
founded on love of Christ, truth, 
and freedom, I feel free to rec- 
ommend the book to students. It 
is a statement of the position, 
views, and actions of the stu- 
dents at Berkeley, or more cor- 
rectly, of those students who par- 
ticipated in the San Francisco 
HUAC and of students of like 
mind. It is especially relevant to 
us students for it is written by 
and of students and treats the 
major political problems of our 


day. As students and citizens we 
cannot avoid admitting the cen- 
trality of the material it dis- 
cusses. The chapter discussing 
SLATE, a student organization 
at Berkeley oriented to national 
politics and working within the 
structure of student government, 
might be of special interest to 
the newly elected officers of our 
student body. The book is not 
a literary masterpiece, but is ex- 
tremely readable and, at times, 
if not due to the style, then to 
the material itself, moving. The 
books which I have recommend- 
ed here before were either hu- 
morous or satirical, and at times 
both. I must warn you that this 
book is neither; it is serious, and 
not meant to impart a comfor- 
table feeling at all. Whether you 
agree or disagree with what is 
said in it, you will be disturbed 
. . .or at least should be, for it 
challenges any student who 
reads it to think seriously about 
his position and role within his 
school and country. If you should 
wish to read the book and have 
a hard time finding a copy, you 
are more than welcome to use 
my heavily underlined copy. 

"W M Qc cijgpgi Personalities 

The churches that provided 
meals for the touring group may 
have noted a certain amount of 
quiet chuckling on the part of 
the students. This was not done 
in disrespect. For a minute. I 
would like you to place yourself 
in their position. By some strange 
coincidence every church which 
served the group offered a ham 
dinner. I suppose the cafeteria 
jinxed all of the menus by send- 
ing the choir off on a ham din- 
ner and greeting them on a ham 

At a certain number of homes 
the students staged midnight 
raids on the refirigerators. It is 
also apparent that these raids 
were on a large scale, as some 
families have had to restock 
their freezers as well as refriger- 
ators. I suppose that if they 
could, those culprits would prob- 
ably stage midnight raids on the 
cafeteria. I can assure you 
though that they would not be 
as successful as they were at 
your houses, our catering com- 
pany locks its refrigerators. 


Rev. Kenneth Linton 

of St. Marks Lutheran Church 
in San Fernando spoke on why 
Christians can believe in a life 
after death. His five main rea- 
sons were: Man has this long- 
ing: eternal life is a fulfillment 
to our present life because of 
the work we leave undone and 
talents unused; the world anti- 
cipates greater things as we an- 
ticipate the fulfillment of God's 
wonders revealed; nothing ever 
gets lost to God even though 
some may refuse to accept the 
worth of the Ooss; the existence 
of people, such as Lincoln and 
St. Francis, who deserve it. So 
whenever you read about the 
death of Reverend Linton in the 
newspaper, don't you believe it! 
He is really more alive than ever 

.... Reverand E. Atrops of 
St. Johns Lutheran Cliurch in Ox- 
nard, California, spoke on man- 
kind's battle for freedom from 
slavery from fellow human be- 
ings. This slavery in reality is 
only an outward manifestation

of our inner battle with sin. By 
nature our minds with evil, a 
slave to sin, and hostile to God. 
Jesus came to take away all 
sins and all suffering. He wants

His loving sacrifice. He wants to

CLC's Active Professor: Luther C. Schwich 

What faculty member can get 
five kids and a dog in a VW? 
If you cheated and looked at the 
picture, you know it is Dr. Luther 
C. Schwich, head of CLC's phys- 
ical education department and 
athletic director. His status as a 
faculty member is an Assistant 
Professor in Social Studies. 

Bom in ELGIN, Minnesota, 
which ought to make you Laker 
fans happy. Dr. Schwich received 
his B. A. from Concordia Teach- 
ers College in Riverforest Illi- 
nois. He was the only three sport 
Ifltterman in his class. As a foot- 
ball quarterback, guard in bas- 
ketball, and shortstop in baseball, 
he became fairly well-known on 
campus. When captain of the 
basketball and basebedl teams in 
his senior year (46) his eyes 
caught his first look at a pert 
little freshman from Canada. He 
insists today "I had her pegged 
from the start." She then draws 
a quizzical glance of "Oh real- 
ly ? ! " 

When asked about his five chil- 
dren he related that there was 

"Jody and four other boys." She's 
12, Bill's 10, Danny's 7, Bobby's 
5, and Andy the "hot dog" is 4. 

His biggest thrill in college 
competition was helping to beat 
Northwestern U. of the Big 10 
in basketball in '45 and '46 and 
in playing against George Miken 
of DePaul, one of the first truly 
great big men of the NBA. 

He is perhaps the only faculty 
member who has taught from 
kindergarten to graduate school. 
From 1946 through 1950 he taught 
at three different elementary 
schools. One was a two-room 
school in Englewood, Colorado 
where he handled the upper di- 
vision and taught the lower. A 
lucky guess as to who the princi- 
pal was, carried a good grade in 
P.E. From '51 to '52 he was at 
Concordia Lutheran High School 
in Seward, Nebraska. At that 
time, during the Korean conflict, 
he was asked to be Concordia 
College's athletic director. P*retty 
good for a man of only 24. He 
held this position and that of bas- 
ketball and baseball coach until

he left to come here to CLC. 

This brought up the next ques- 
tion as to why he chose to leave 
the security of Concordia and go 
west. "I think it was the chal- 
lenge and my pioneer instinct," 
he Einswered. Now, we know 
many students feel "pioneer" is 
a wasted word now. Well, Dr. 
Schwich has been pioneering ath- 
letic programs throughout his ca- 
reer. How can we tend to give 
up this word after only eight 

Our P.E. program this year 
was adapted from Concordia, and 
for being mostly just freshmen. 
Dr. Schwich has been impressed 
with our progress. 

His M.A. was received from 
Denver University In 1953 and 
his PhD. from Utah in 1960 after 
editing his 154 page thesis of "An 
Evaluation of a Teacher's Educa- 
tion Program in Health and 
Physical Education. Also he has 
done professional writing, with 
many articles appearing in "Lu- 
theran Education" magazine. 

Dr. Schwich has a "green 
thumb" and musical talent. He 
needs the gardener's instinct to 
keep his residence in Tara. 
He applies his musical talent by 
playing the organ at the Luther- 
an Church of our Redeemer in 
Thousand Oaks. He also teaches 
the adult Bible class. His church 
and youth work have gone hand 
in hand throughout his career. 
He feels that athletics and his 
church have become his hobbies. 

He is now commissioner of Co- 
nejo Valley's recreation program 
and coach of the Little League 
team. The whole family has a 
part in the team, even "Dunder" 
the daschund who led the base- 
ball team in an impromtu X- 
country run after a practice. 
Mrs. Schwich is probably travel- 
mg secretary, Jody is assistant 
coach (she was given her un- 
conditional release out here after 
being the first girl to play LL 
back in Seward. Bill pitches, 
Danny is equipment manager. 
Robby is the batboy, and Andy 
is the mascot. Looks like an 
O'Malley-type corporation doesn't 
it? I trust the Schwichs won't 
forget about drinking fountains ! 

As this school year is closing, 
CLC must commend Dr. Schwich 
for getting so much hard work 
out of his basketball and baseball 
players. "Hiey overcame many 
obstacles, and , with this behind, 
the future looks brighter for the 
college and for Dr. Luther C. 
Schwich, CLC's active professor. 

Camarillo State 
Mental Hospital 
Hosts CLC Students 
At Press Conference 

A press conference was held 
May 1 at Camarillo State Men- 
tal Hospital . All colleges and 
high schools in Ventura County 
sent representatives from their 
respective student publications to 
attend. Representing CLC were 
Steve Belgum and Jon Staf- 

The purpose of the conference 
was to show the young newspa- 
per men and women the great 
strides forward the mental hos- 
pital has taken in the past years. 
Speaking to the group were: Dr. 
Jacobsohn. Chief of Profession- 
al Education; Dr. Toto, Ass't. 
Supt. of Medical Surgery; Dr. 
Siegal, Chief Psychologist; Mary 
L. Hogeback, Psyc. Nurse In- 
structor; Mr. Vercoutere. Supt. 
of the Rehabilitation Dept.; and 
Mr. Lee, Chief of the Social Ser- 
vice. CThe full names of the 
speakers were not obtainable.) 
"Hiey each spoke in their own 
field and discussed the scope of 
the hospital's program, changing 
concepts in psychiatric care and 
career opportunities in mental 
health fields. 

After the press conference, tlie 
students were taken on a guided 
tour throughout the hospital. They 
visited different wards and re- 
habilitation centers, including a. 
closed-circuit television station 
operated entirely by patients.

Revelation Banquet 
Slated for May 24 

On Thursday, May 24th, the 
Alpha Hall Revelation Banquet 
will be held. It is at this ban- 
quet that the Secret Sisters will 
be revealed. All semester long 
each girl in Alpha has been and 
has had a Secret Sister. This is 
the reason for the windows plas- 
tered with soap and Hpstick, the 
cards and presents on doors, and 
the stuffed mailboxes. 

The dress will be cotton dress- 
es and heels. The theme is a se- 
cret in itself so Thursday night 
will be one full of surprises. Pro- 
fessor Roland Dille will be on 
the program with a monologue 
which also is supposed to be a 
big surprise. 

So, Secret Sisters, one and all, 
active or dormant, come out to 
the Revelation Banquet and meet 
up with your other "sneaky" 
half. Let it not be said of you, 

"Oh so you are the one 

that did not write." 

'Hearts in Harmony' 
Theme of CLC Prom 

"Hearts in Harmony" is the 
theme of CLC's first prom. The 
Prom will take place tonight at 
the Las Posas Country Gub near 
Camarillo. It will run from nine 
o'clock until midnight. 

The band will be the famous 
"Dick Falinsby's" This band has 
played professionally for nume- 
rous high school and college 
proms throughout the country. 

According to Bill Ewing, gen- 
eral cahirman of the Prom, 

"Contrary to popular demand, 
there will be no twisting allow- 
ed." Ewing continued his note of 
warning, "Girls with high heels 
are asked to stay off of the put- 
ting greens." 

Debate Teams Net 
Excellent Ratings 

Recently four CLC students; 
Marianne Wilson. Jim Frahm, 
Chris Salminen, and Brain Da- 
vies, have been representing the 
college at the Southern Califor- 
nia Forensics Asfo^IpUo i debate 
meets. These four debating the 
topic, "Resolved: that labor or- 
ganizations should be under the 
jurisdiction of anti-trust legisla- 
tion," have returned with three 
excellent ratings. 

April 7 saw the four at ^^yola 
University debating in a novice 
meet. Marianne and Jim return- 
ed from this meet with an exc-'- 
lent rating, having won thr«e out 
of four debates. 

Then on May 4 and 5 the four 
debated in the Invitational meet 
at PasadtiiK College. Both 
teams returi sd home with e::- 
cellent ratings. C:ris and Brian 
had won five out )f six debates, 
and Marianne and Jim had won 
four out of six. CL? can be 
proud of her dehaie tL'ams, and 
Dr. Kenneth Sal- ton, advi-:rir, 
must be commended.

The 7-10 Corner CLC Loses to Rio Hondo 3-2 

By Mike Robertson 

Because of the faculty paper 
and the Easter vacation, this col- 
umn has been absent. To do jus- 
tice to the fine bowlers of CLC, 
let's look at some scores from 
the last few weeks. On April 3, 
Jon Voss had 212-208-166 for a fine 
series of 586. Doctor Farwell had 
184-164-189 for a total of 517. Aft- 
er Easter vacation we all took 
our Easter eggs — er, bowling 
balls, and went down for a night 
of bowling. This April 24, Esther 
Kellar had a very good 508 
scratch series. By the way, 
"scratch" does not mean that the 
bowler was bothered by fleas; it 
means that no extra pins, or han- 
dicap, have been added to the 
score. The last few nights of 
bowling have not yielded many 
really good scores; spring fever 
seems to be the fourth member 
of every team. When this is 
printed, if it sneaks past the cen- 
sor, there will be only one more 
week of bowling to go, and so it 

CLC's baseball team lost ano- 
ther squeaker May 5, when they 
lost 3-2 to Rio Hondo. 

Excellent pitching by Rio Hon- 
do and poor hitting led to the 

would be good to take notice of 
the seasonal high games and ser- 
ies. Also, I've got to fill up this 

The high game for a 3 mem- 
ber team was a 607 set by Team 
5 which is composed of Jeff Vo- 
tava, Judy Jacobsen, and Jon 
Voss. The others are: Men's

Men's Hdcp Game — Paul Kil-

Lutheran's defeat. Rio Hondo's 
Jim Carson pitched a six-hit ball 
game, and also picked up six- 
teen strikeouts in the process. 

Rio Hondo scored their first 
run in the fifth inning. The first 
batter up hit a triple and the 
second man for Rio Hondo drew 
a walk. In his eagerness to steal 
the man on first was caught in a 
run down. Menwhile, during the 
run down, the man on third 
crossed the plate. Rio Hondo's 
two other runs came in the 
eighth inning off a base on balls, 
a single, and a triple. 

The Lutherans couldn't put 
enough hits together in one inn- 
ing to score. The only scoring 
for CLC came in the top of the 
ninth. Jim Schaff led off the inn- 
ing by being hit by a pitched 
ball. Woody Wilk ran for him. 
Jack Kniseley then grounded out 
to first and Bryan McConnell 
walked. Fritz Ohlirich accounted 
for the second out by driving a 
long fly to right field. Richard 


California has finally blessed 
CLC's track team and baseball 
team with warm weather, but 
dtill no facilities. Things look 
great for next fall, however. All 
that is left for the football field 
is a little grass. The track is al- 
most ready to go now. Mr. 
Kahnert had his PE classes out 
running on the new track last 
week. Everyone was doing fine 
until they hit the quick-sand on 
the last turn. It's a good thing 
Mr. Kahnert had the boys run- 
ning in two groupds so the sec- 
ond group was available to pull 
the first half out. 

StoUe and Jim Huchtausen hit 
back to back singles to make the 
score 3-2. George Engdahl com- 
ing to the plate with two out, a 
man on second and third, struck 
out to end the ball game. The 
losing pitcher was Allen Aron-

Baseball hasn't been going so 
good for CLC lately. The boys 
have lost their last four straight. 
It isn't just bad baseball either, 
but moreover you can't say the 
team is getting the best breaks. 
No one is complaining or making 
excuses, but let's look at some 
of the handicaps the team faces. 
Being unable to play at home is 
probably the biggest factor espe- 
cially psychologically. Being at 
home always gives a team a 
slight menta! advantage. The 
long road trips always create 
problems for the players. Classes 
must either be switched or junked 
cill together, TTiis is bad too. As 
much as students might enjoy 
skipping classes this never got 
anyone an A. College athletes 
by no means love to miss class. 
Some players stay at home In 
order not to miss class and this 
then makes the team weaker. 
No one, as was said before, is 
looking for excuses, but the stu- 
dent body should understand this 
situation before jumping to con- 

Track and Field 

By Grant HoUey 

Since my last article the track 
team has seen much action. 
There have been definite im- 
provements made in every event, 
and some outstanding marks have 
been set. The spikemen have 
competed in three meets, two 
triangular meets and one dual 

In the furst meet, a three way 
contest with L.A. Baptist College 
and L.A. Pacific College, C.L.C. 
captured second place by gain- 
ing seventeen points over L.A. 
Baptist. L.A. Pacific, however, 
ran away with the contest by 
scoring 105 points. Two C.L.C. 
records were set by Russell Flor- 
a. One was by capturing a first 
in the mile-run with a time of 
4: 56.3, and the other was by 
placing first in the two-mile run 
with a time of 11:23.1. The best 
performance of the day was 
achieved by Roger Anderson who 
placed first in the 880 yard 
run with a time of 2:08.7, to set 
another C.L.C. record. 

In the meet that followed, on 
April 25, with the strong Po- 
mona Frosh, Anderson placed 
first in the 880 with a time of 
2:06.4. This broke his old rec- 
ord which he had set in the 
previous meet. Other outstand- 
ing achievements were made by 
Jerrel Chrlstianson, placing sec- 
ond in the 440, and by Tom Eck- 
land placing second in the 100 
yard dash Chuck Coon also 
showed a mau-ked improvement 
over his last effort. 

The next meet, a triangular 
affair with Claremont-Mudd and 
California Baptist, Anderson at- 
tempted to break his record, but 
was greatly hindered by a swift 
wind and a poor track. How- 
ever, he did place first in the 
880 with a time of 2:08.1, which 
was outstanding considering the 
conditions under which he had 
to compete. Another fine effort 
was achieved by Russell Flora 
who placed second in the mile 
run only two-tenths of a second 
behind the lead man. 

I would like to say that this 
has been a fine season. Our 
team, despite a lack of facilities, 
has done outstandingly well and 
has shown tremendous potenfial 
under the experienced eye of 
Coach John Kahnert.

White and the Seven Dwarfs." 
The banquet was held in the back

Jan Hutchins played the part of 
Snow White. 

One of the key features of the

the girls.

Happy Talk 

with Schiiltzee 

In a matter of days from now 
California Lutheran College- will - 
be going through a period un- 
like any it has thus-far been sub- 
jected to. The only term which 
will be able to explain the cam- 
pus is utter chaos. As students 
you got a good taste of what is 
meant when you went home over 
Christmas and Easter vacations. 
The chads which is being re- 
ferred fo is that of moving day. 
Can't you see it very clearly 
now? Each person should have 
one suitcase, but more than like- 
ly they will have three or four, 
plus records and record players 
and books and, well you go on 
from here, I quit. 

Some students have found what 
they thinlt are reasonable solu- 
tions as, renting a trailer, mak- 
ing a few more trips back and 
forth, sending clothes home in 
the mail, or else start taking 
your stuff home earlier, about 
a week earlier. Maybe if the stu- 
dents think hard enough they 
will come up with another pub- 
licity idea as a twenty turtle 
team pulling a wagonful of lug- 
gage. Of course this luggage 
would be only that which the 
students could not quite find 
room for. The turtle could take 
the luggage to a central area as 
the Moorpark Road cut off from 
the freeway. At least almost ev- 
eryone has to go past that gen- 
eral area on their way home. 
However, as in all good plans, 
there is a hitch. By the time our 
speedy turtle team arrives at its 
destination the students would be 
returning fiom summer vacation 
to start the fall semester. Oh 
well! Anybody for starting a lug- 
gage and car stuffing contest? 

CLC Prom Success 

Las Posas Country Club was 
the scene of CLC's first spring 
prom on Friday evening. May 
11th. The dance. "Hearts in Har- 
mony," was held from nine 
o'clock until midnight in the club 
which had been decorated with 
large red hearts, bearing each 
couple's names, hung along the 

As each guest arrived he trav- 
eled down the receiving line con- 
sisting of: Paul Meyer, Fresh- 
man Class President, and Sybil 
Home; President and Mrs. Or- 
ville Dahl; Dr. and Mrs. E. D. 
Farwell; Dr. Robert Hage; Rev- 
erend and Mrs. Kallas, Fresh- 
man class sponsors; Mr. and 
Mrs. Paul Karlstrom , Mr. and

class sponsoi's; and Don Meyer, 
Sophomore Qass President, and 
Mii'iam Bloomquist to the band 
room, where the famous "Dick 
Falinsby's" band was playing. 

Bill Ewing, general chairman 
of the prom, deserves much cred- 
it for making the first prom at 
CLC a tremendous success. 

Letters to the Editor: 

Dear Editor: 

Since when is the church a 
-"hobby"-? -(May -11 issue, -article 
on Dr. Schwich) 

Also in this last issue, "The 
Echo -Chamber" column, what is 
the purpose of a college? Does 
it exist to harbor a student gov- 
ernment? Is it "going to pot" 
when students s^art spending 
more time on studying and less 
time on social and extracuri'icu- 
lar activities? In this last term 
especially, final exams are im- 
portant to a lot ' of people for 
some reason. And for some rea- 
son I, for one, find that in order 
to increase study time I must 
decrease a corresponding amount 
of social-endeavor time. My only 
regret is that it has taken me 
this long to learn this seemingly 
simple fact. 

And now for Roman numeral 
three, let me say that although 
I may disagree with your pre- 
mise, "I will defend to the death 
your right to say it." The Echo 
had many items with which I 
did not agree but I was jubilant 
that at last something of color 
has been recorded. At last it is 
shown that "even at a Christian 
college" people are allowed more 
than milquetoast opinions in cam- 
pus publications. HURRAH! 


EDITOR'S NOTE — "Jake" is 
entirely justified in her repri- 
mand that church is not a hobby. 
The phrase in the article on Dr. 
Schwich of the last issue should 
have been reworded. 

In defense of the attack on 
"The Echo Chamber," not once 
was it stated that students should 
abandon all academic endeavors. 
Student interest must continue to 
be active. Incidentally, Jake, 
your interest was shown by writ- 
ing this letter. Thank you. 

Dear Editor: 

The election of 1884 was one 
of the most bitter and disgrace- 
ful campaigns in Amprican his- 
tory. Today's historians look back 
and report that every nook and 
cranny of the candidates' lives 
were delved into for any informa- 
tion that would smudge the op- 
posing candidates' character. It 
took over a century for such a 
disgraceful campaign to be 
waged in our country's histoi-y. 
But it certainly is a shame that 
C.L.C.'s history can record such 
"under-the-table" campaign tac- 
tics in its first year. 

Smearing the character of oth- 
er students, who too often in a 
school our size are supposedly 
friends, is a tactic that we avoid- 
ed even in our "immature" high 
school campaigning. We were po- 
lite enough to stick to the issues 
at hand, not the personalities in- 
volved. It is so easy to look at 
part of the facts but to ignore 
others (which one professor here 
has defined as heresay), and this, 
unfortunately, has become in- 

creasingly evident in each of our 
school's campaigns. 

I ..hope Ihat in the years to 
come CLC's election campaigns 
will be conducted in a more con- 
siderate manner and will reflect 
a true (Hiristian concern for the 
true facts (not just half of the 
true facts) and for the individual 
feeling involved. This year's ac- 
tivities were supposed to establish 
traditions that would be followed 
for years to come. I hope that 
such campaigning is not one of 
its best examples. 

Concerned Student 

EDITOR'S NOTE - Hurrah! 

Dear Editor: 

We are writing in reference to 
an article entitled, "Operatic 
Puppet Show Meets Varied Stu- 
dent Opinion" by Linda Rawson 
in the May 11 issue of the Mount- 
clef Echo. Although we realize 
that any review of an artistic 
endeavor published in a newspa- 
per must be opinionated, we ob- 
ject to the entirely one-sided crit- 
icism of the puppet show. If, as 
the headline suggests, the show 
met with VEiried student opinion, 
it seems only fair that something 
should be said by those students 
who enjoyed the show and did 
not consider it "one of the most 
disgusting programs that has 
been seen at C.L.C." 

We were more shocked and dis- 
gusted by the close-mindedness 
of the article than by any of the 
satire presented in the show. We 
did not consider the puppet show 
"vulgar" and, in fact, we feel 
that college students with any 
maturity at all should be able 
to accept adult satire without 
immediately labeling it "vulgar" 
or "disgusting"! 

Not only did we consider the 
satire clever, we also thought 
the singing far from "atrocious". 
We did not feel that the puppets 
were "hideous," but rather that 
they had a lot o£ personality. 
We further disagree with Miss 
Rawson in her opinion of Doro- 
thy Neumann's monologues. We 
enjoyed them and did not think 
she was "overly dramatic". 

The audience response was ex- 
cellent. However, after an article 
which completely tears down 
practically every act in the show, 
it seems odd that the reviewer 
should end by saying "... a good 
time was had by all who attend- 
ed." But from where we sat, it 
looked like she was right! 
Yvon Madsen and 
Carol Cai-fagno 

EDITOR'S NOTE — Perhaps 
some of the words used in the 
aiticle on the puppet show were 
too harsh. However, many stu- 
dents were in agreement with 
Miss Rawson's comments. You 
are certainly welcome to your 
opinions, and I am well aware 
that others share your views too. 

The Elephant Race — Behind the Scenes 

A play by 

If only Wayne Wilson hadn't 
shown us that one newspaper 
with the open invitation to all 
colleges to enler the first inter- 
collegiate elephant race at Or- 
ange County State College in Ful- 
lerton! He could have shown it 
to anybody, but he had to show 
it to the type of guys that would 
race a peanut to the top of Pike's 
Peak with their noses for a 50c 
bet! We were in Dean Hage's 
home figuring how we could 
raise the money five minutes lat- 
er. The dean was all for it! He 
confronted us with the problems 
involved, and told us that his 
good friend. Dean Spolyer, was 
in charge of the race at Orange, 
so we had a good "in". 

We made call after call to get 
an elephant, and finally Mr. Ruhe 
at Jungleland consented to give 
us a baby that weighed 425 

ready owns one of 18 or 20 horses 
expected by next fall. More ten- 
nis courts will be located direct- 
ly west of the Mountclef Inn, 
next year's mens dormatory. 

play account by Kars+en Lundring 

pounds. Now we needed $150. 

We learned that twelve colleges 
had entered their elephants, and 
we tliought that with only a 425- 
pounder, our chances for winning 
would be slim. Then we came 
upon the idea of a publicity stunt 
and entering either a tmtle or 
a camel. Jungleland authorities 
said that we could rent either 
one, but that a turtle would be 
better because it was an "ele- 
phant tortoise". The Elephant 
Racing Association officers then 
decided to do it, and we kept the 
novelty quiet until the last day. 

The day of the big race came 
on May 11. About 40 CLC stu- 
dents drove down to Fullerton to 
support our tortoise and cheer 
him on. Our enti-ee stole the 
show as it was escorted onto the 
field. Five big, strong-armed 
CLC men brought it out. Camera- 
men and reporters swarmed 
around the entree. We made 
quite an attraction. 

Our entree was given a 96.2 
yard handicap in a 100 yard race. 

It was the first race of tlie day, 
and our turtle finished sixth, in 
the second race. The monstrous 
animal was 150 years old and 
weighed over 550 pounds and had 
the original "hard-shell" finish. 
"Mount Clef", as he was called, 
would really get up and go for 
a banana, but once he got a lit- 
tle too hungry and took a chunk 
out of one of the students' fin- 

The day was well worth the 
time and money spent as it gave 
the college much publicity in 
many newspapers and maga- 
zines. Also, CLC received its first 
official sports trophy from Or- 
ange County State College and 
won a blue ribbon which was 
presented last week. It will be 
placed in CLC's "projected" tro- 
phy case. 

The officers of CLC's Elephant 
Racing Association are working 
in cooperation with Jungleland 
and already are making plans 
for next year's race to be held 
in the Conejo Valley.

Dr. K. Hartley Sulston, 
Lecturer in Creative Arts 

Dr. K. Hartley Sulston, Lectur- 
er in Creative Arts at CLC, is a 
member ot the clergy of the 
United Lutheran Church, and is 
pastor at St. Paul's Lutheran 
Church in Northridge. Dr. Sul- 
ston comes on campus twice a 
week to teach the Speech 11 

Boi-n in Tacoma, Washington. 
Dr. Sulston entered Northwest 
Nazarene College, Nampa, Idaho 
in 1938 and graduated eleven 
years later — in 1949. It might be 
added here that World War II, 
the U.S. Navy, and destroyer du- 
ty in the Pacific provided a sev- 
en year interruption. Dr. Sulston 
had, in fact, hoped to make a 
career of the Navy but. as he 
put it, "the good Lord inter- 
vened." It was during his last 
two years in college that he de- 
cided to go into the ministry. 

That wasn't his only major ac- 
complishment during his under- 
graduate days. He earned varsity 
letters in Basketball and Debate 
and was a member of Delta Sig- 
ma Rho — a national forensics 
society. He was student body 
president in his senior year and 
was elected to "Who's Who in 
American Colleges and Universi- 
ties" in 1949. 

Dr. Sulston did graduate work 
at the University of Kansas and 
received his masters degree there 
in 1952. His doctorate is from 
Noithwestern University in Illi- 

Dr. Sulston taught speech at 
several colleges and seminaries 
including Northern Baptist Theo- 
logical Seminary. For seven 
years he was pastor to Methodist 
churches in Kansas City and Chi- 

The last teaching position Dr. 
Sulston held was at the Universi-_ 
ty of California at Berkeley from 
1953 to 1956. While there he de- 
cided to enter Pacific Lutheran 
Theological Seminary, also in 
Berkeley. He was graduated from 

there in 1960 and accepted the 
pastorate at St. Paul's in North- 
ridge that same year. 

When asked about his family. 
Dr. Sulston said that he met his 
wife Eva right after he entered 
the Navy in 1941. He then re- 
considered and said that their 
families were friends and that ac- 
tually they first met when they 
were about three years old — but 
neither has much recollection of 

The Sulston's were married in 
1942. emd have two children. Kar- 
en is a CLC freshman co-ed. 
Matt is a Grandada Hills high 
school sophomore, plays football 
and is a member of the swim- 
ming team. 

Concerning his teaching field 
of speech, Dr. Sulston said that 
it is a comparitively new aca- 
demic field. The first doctorate 
in speech was given in 1926. In 
another sense the field is old. 
Oratory is £ui ancient art. 

"I personally feel that we make 
a serious mistake in leaving 
speech training to the college lev- 
el." was Dr. Sulston's comment. 
It is important for the individual 
to be able to communicate ef- 
fectively in both writing and 

Dr. Sulston would hope that in 
the coming years forensics would 
be seen as an outstanding extra- 
curricular activity at CLC. Dr. 
Sulston feels that forensics is im- 
portant for two reasons: 

1. Forensics makes a signifi- 
cant contribution to the individ- 
ual — an average person can 
learn more during one weekend 
at a debate meet than a long 
while at something else. 

2.A strong program in Foren- 
sics is bound to attract the more 
capable serious kind of student 
— ?r student has to be tops to 
survive in a forensics program — 
and as such, the college can build 
up a reputation for academic ex-

Debate Team Sets Tradition 

California Lutheran College's 
Forensic Department in its first 
year has done an excellent job 
of creating a tradition for others 
to follow. California Lutheran 
College entered the Southern Cal- 
ifornia Speech Association this 
year joining the ranks of such 
members as San Diego State, 
Whittier, University of California 
at Santa Barbara, Cal Western. 
Chapman. USC, Occidental and 

On March 2 and 3 Marianne 
Wilson and Chris Salminen en- 
tered the Southern California 
Masters Tournament at Long 
Beach. This tournament was 
composed of only those ot accom- 
plished speaking ability. Mari- 
anne entered both the oral in- 
terpretation for women and per- 
suasive speaking categories. She 
was a runner-up in the persuas- 
ive speaking section. Chris en- 
tered impromptu speaking and 
oral interpretation categories. 

On April 7 a debate meet was 
held at Loyola; this was for the 
students who have only had one 
year of debate. Jim Frahm, Mar- 
ianne Wilson, Christ Salminen 

and Brian Davies represented 
California Lutheran in this meet. 
Marianne and Jim won three out 
of the four awards given. Chris 
and Brian won two out of four. 
In this meet fifty-two schools en- 
tered their teams. From this 
number nine teams were given 
excellent ratings, California Lu- 
theran was one of these nine. 

On May 4 and 5 a debate meet 
was held at Pasadena College. 
Jim Frahm, Chris Sahninen, 
son entered the power debating. 
Brian Davies. and Marianne Wil- 
In this type of a meet the teams 
must alternate between debating 
the negative and affirmative side. 
Jim and Marianne won three out 
of three the first day. The ques- 
tion was : Resolved : Labor or- 
ganizations should be under the 
jurisdiction of anti-trust legisla- 
tion. In the last debate they tied 
with the team which won the fu-st 
meet however, they lost because 
according to debate rules if there 
is a tie the decision always goes 
to the team on the affirmative 
side. Chris and Brian won five 
out of six for the entire meet and 
won the ratings of excellent. 

Blood Bank Receives ^^^ 
44 Donations 

The decision to have a college 
blood bank was made early in 
March, Arrangements were made 
with the Tri-County Blood Bank, 
Incorporated, and so, on April 
12, 44 students, faculty members, 
and school staff were in Rm 125 
with their sleeves rolled up. The 
nurses. Miss Landdeck and Miss 
Schneider, assisted the people 
from the Blood Bank. CLC now 
has 44 units of blood on account 
with the Bank. The blood bank 
for CLC works in the following 
manner: any student, faculty 
member, or staff person may 
draw on the account. Also, any 
member of a family of a person 
concerned with this college may 
receive blood from the account. 
This mcludes even the construc- 
tion workers who are building the 
Centrum. In order to draw on our 
account. Dr. Orville Dahl. Chair- 
man of the CLC Blood Bank, 
must sign a release. Then, the 
replacement of the blood to the 
account must be in a 2:1 ratio 
in order not to have to pay cash 
as would be done if the ratio 
were 1:1. There must be t\vo 
pints replaced for each one used. 

Plans are in order to have do- 
nations made to the Blood Bank 
at least twice a year, probably 
in the spring and in the fall. 
There has been no need for blood 
to be released as yet, but at CLC 
there will be an abundant supply 
if someone should ever need 
transfusions. Each participant in 
the blood program receives a 
card which states their blood 
type. As a matter of interest, 
43% of all people have Type A. 
13% have TVpe B, and 4% have 
Type AB, There are hopes for 
a bigger turnout next year at

The mass early exodus was kept 
completely secret from the CLC 

The day dawned with the sun 
shinging brightly, and the coeds 
seemed somewhat stupified as to 
the ftliereabouts of the men. as 
no men were seen in the break- 
fast or diimer lines, and none of 
them were in attendance at any 
of the off-campus churches for 
services. It remained a mystery 
until a loud, horn-honking, bright- 
ly decorated car caravan of some 
twenty cars and almost 80 CLC 
men returned to the campus late 
that afternoon. The caravan was

led by CLC's entree in the ele- 
phant race, "Mount aef", the 
turtle. The 550-pound ' 'Mount 
Clef" was riding in a pick-up 

The men spent an interesting 
day. After the caravan silently 
sneaked out early in the morn- 
ing, they ate hearty breakfasts 
in a pancake house in O.xnard, 
and then they proceeded to their 
main destination. Our Savior's 
Lutheran Church in Port Huene- 
me, a newly-formed mission con- 
gregation. Pastor Theodore Fo- 
reid and members of the congi-e- 
gation were very glad to see the 
men arrive, and the CLC men 
chatted with them over coffee 
after the church service. Words 
of encouragement were given to 
members of the struggling young 
congi-egation. Pastor Foreid posed 
with the "Beta HaU Boys" for 
photographs. Then the caravan 
of cars set out once more. This 
time the destination was dinner 
and the beach.

Basketball Season Brings Fond Memories 

Of the many memories students 
of CLC will carry with them for 
the rest of their lives, will be 
some of the thrilling moments of 
the exciting sports events of this 
past year. The following is part 
of an article by Woody Wilk. 
Echo Sports Writer, from the 
March 2nd issue of the Echo. Of 
these sports events none will for- 
get the Basketball Team . . . 

"November 21st found the Lutes 
at Azusa College, located in Azu- 
sa. strangely enough. All con- 
cerned, were confident but un- 
tried in the ranks of college play, 
excluding Bruce Wahlin. Bruce 
was a mainstay for Bethany's 
"fighting Lutes" as a freshman 
last year. Having won seventeen 
straight over a period of two 
seasons, Azusa took charge of the 
contest and CLC came out on 
the short end of a 53 to 75 score. 
A humorous note to this game 
was added by Al Howe. It seems 
Azusa is one of Al's firequent 
stops. Craig Berry, our chauffeur, 
had to ask Al frequently alwut 
directions. This is where the now 
famous "you're doin' fine" origi- 

"Returning home, Biola waxed 
us by an eighteen point spread, 
79 to 61. This "waxing" probably 
polished us up for the next game 
as we turned back the talented 
Chapman Frosh 73-70. Wahlin 
icing the game with two free 
throws in the last seconds." "We 
then journeyed to Pepperdine 
College in Los Angeles to play 
the Wave's frosh. We were im- 
mediately introduced to a pro- 
type basketball-receiving elbow 
smashes and "hips" under the 
bucket. The rugged frosh wound 
up Bristol stomping us 75 to 

"The point of the compass now 
tiums east for more humor, but 
no victories. Playing two repu- 

table frosh teams of the Southern 
California area, Pomona and 
Redlands, in that order, CLC lost 
two close ones, 72-62 and 52-53, 
respectively at Redlands, after a 
trip from CLC of 102 miles, we 
kept the Bulldog's frosh on the 
run during the first half. Then 
in the second half, the officials 
put us on the run with poor calls. 
A ridiculous technical foul cost 
us the game. It seems statician 
Karsten Lundring, made a der- 
rogatory sound when the oppo- 
nent was in the process of "chok- 
ing" a fi-ee throw. "TWEET" ! ! 
"Technical foul on the bench," 
said the referee. Needless to say, 
the opponent made the free 
throw. Don't worry about it 
Karst, we still love you." 

"At home the next night, we 
gave the student body our Christ- 
mas present, a victory over Rio 
Hon 'o, bringing our record to 
3 and 5. Vacation came for Steve 
Gross, Jerry Bell, Stu Major, 
Jim Huchtausen, and Bruce Wahl- 
in All earned a needed rest." 

"The new year started with 
the LA Pacific Tourney and a 
heaf-tbreakin? loss to California 
Baptist College. 79 to 80. The 
Lutes out-played everybody that 
night, except the officials." 

"Bouncing back, CLC picked 
up two easy victories over Rio 
Hondo and LA Baptist. We then 
traveled west and played the 
Point Mugu Naval Base. They 
sank us, but that Navy chow was 
the greatest!" 

"Up to now this story has had 
everything but drama — you've 
got it now! The big one! The 
winners of their own tournament, 
LA Pacific College, came to play. 
We went to beat them, and 
beat them we did, and it was the 
greatest game CLC's hoopstei-s 
played all season. Gross hit from 
outside. Wahlin drove in for lay- 

ups, Huck's hook shot was on 
target, Major and Bell dominated 
the boards and Dr. Schwlch's 
pre-game oratory was to the 
point: "Get 'em!" 

"After reaching our high point, 
finals and semester break hit us 
all at once. Wahline transferred, 
and Gross, Bell, and Gregg 
Schmidt (just back with the doc- 
tor's OK) were declared scholas- 
tically ineligible. When you lose 
three starters, it just isn't the 
same. We didn't give up! Neces- 
sary adjustments were made and 
the team hung together. Since 
the second semester, our record 
hasn't been as flossy as the first's 
(3-5, and 9-12 on the season). 

"Going east, west, north, or 
south, our basketball team never 
lost confidence in themselves. 
Speaking for myself and twelve 
other guys, we are proud to have 
served you. CLC." 

Track e^nd Field 


As the dust settles C.L.C.'s first 
track season comes to an end. 
Looking back over the events of 
the year, we see some new rec- 
ords being set and some very 
outstanding performances achiev- 

Russell Flora set two records 
by placing first in the one mile 
and two mile runs. Russell, being 
the primary distance man for the 
team, dominated these events all 
season. He ran 4:56.3 and 11:23.1 

Roger Anderson set a college 
record in the 880. He placed first 
several times this year, setting 
the record and then breaking it. 
The final record stands at 2:06.4. 

Jerry Liebersbach, our 440 
man, did a very fine job. He 
turned out a best performance 

By Mike 
Well, this year has come to an 
end, and for this last column I'd 
like to talk on bowling, in gener- 
al, at CLC. Participation has 
been active by those few dedi- 
cated souls who compose approxi- 
mately 10% of our total student 
body and faculty. We hope that 
this percentage will rise next 
year when there are more stu- 
dents here. There's always quite 
a bit of participation in the first 
semester, until the students re- 
ceive their midterm grades. 
Those of us who place bowling 
above studying continue as we 
have this last semester. Next 
fall, we hope to have several in- 
tercollegiate teams, and also to 
have a P.E. course in bowling. 
Each team gave its utmost this 
last season. Several styles such 
as: the "spider." the "tornado." 
the "ballet," the "knee-slider," 
the "lofter." the "fall-down." and 
the "ball-dropper" have been 
displayed. Were I to name the 
originators of these styles, I 
would be hung, and I do not 
mean in effigy. I will, however, 
give credit to my roommate for 
originating the "tornado" style. 
If Larry Lorfing ever forgets to 
let go of the ball, he will become 
part of the tornado. Then, too, 
on Tuesday evenings, even our 
nurses. Miss Landdeck and Miss 
Schneider, leaving the school a 
bandage and a bottle of aspirin, 
joined in the bowling. If they 
know medicine like they know 
bowling — there'll be an epidem- 
ic for sure at CLC. The other 
faculty members whom I com- 
mented on in another issue have 
also put in their two cents (on 
professors' salaries, that's all 
they could afford). Dr. Haeuss- 
ler's knee-slider" style was prob- 
ably the most unique method of 
the faculty bowlers. His final 
pose looks like Washington cross- 
in'^ the Delaware — without a 
boat. Dr. E. D. Farwel! bowls 
such a ball that it makes me 
wonder if he thinks that the pins 
are students. I can say also that 
Miss Amundsen bowled in awe- 
some fear that someone would 
actually put on a cha cha record. 
She'd sneaked by with the two 


step for the last 3 weeks. She, 
along with Mr. John Kahnert and 
Dr. Luther Schwich, had ar- 
ranged for bowling instruction for 
us at the beginning of this year. 
If we hadn't had that valuable 
instruction — who knows what 
might have happened? We might 
still have good averages! 

Now it can be told! The league 
has ended and the final results 
are in. Several are the same as 
listed in the last issue, however, 
changes did occur. Also, as a 
person can accept only one per- 
sonal trophy, some bowlers had 
to choose one of the categories 
in which they had the best score, 
and hence, others were eligible 
to receive a trophy. The final 
results are as follows: First place 
went to Team 5 which is com- 
posed of Jon Voss. Judy Jacob- 
sen, and Jeff Votava. For sec- 
ond place, three teams tied. 
These teams were: Team 2 which 
is composed of Tiff Barnard, Sue 
Marks, and Mike Robertson, 
Team 1 which is composed of Dr. 
Haeussler. Miss Amundson, and 
Dr. Farwell. and Team 2 which 
is composed of Gary Brent. Judy 
Schueler, and Larry Lorfing. 
Take notice that a faculty team 
placed in the trophy class! After 
all, we'd like to pass Western 
Qvilization, American History, 
and Genetics. Miss Amundson is 
the girl's P.E. teacher, so girls 
in the league will probably pass 
too. For men's hdcp series — 
Doctor Farwell with 646; for 
men's hdcp game — Gary Wie- 
mer with 239; for ladies hdcp 
series — Barbara Myers with 
645: for ladies hdcp game — Judy 
Jacobsen with 224; for men's 
scratch series — Jon Voss with 
586; for men's scratch gsune — 
Paul Kilbert with 224; for ladies 
scratch series — Esther Keller 
with 508; and for ladies scratch 
game — Nancy Landdeck with 

So long fi-om the 7-10 Corner 
until next year. Have a good 
summer, and remember, let's all 
participate in bowling next year. 
After all, it gets the college stu- 
dents off the streets and into the 

of 54.1. Jim Hollowed showed his 
versatility by competing in three 
events. He threw the discus 79 
feet, put the shot 32' dW. and 
he broad jumped 17' 10"; all 
these were very good perform- 
ances. Chuck Coon, one of the 
most improved members on the 
team, put his shot 38' 5" for a 
best performance. Tom Ecklund 
turned in a 10.7 in the 160 yard 
dash and also did well in the 220 
yard dash. Jerry Christinson fin- 
ished seconds behind Jerry Lie- 
bersbach in the 440 with a time 
of 56.8. his best for the season. 
The team competed in five dual 
meets, winning one. However, 

this will stand as one of the most 
important seasons in the history 
of this institution. This is not Be- 
cause of the tremendous effort 
that the team put forth, or the 
great desire to stride to perfec- 
tion that they displayed, or be- 
cause of the great job that was 
done by Mr. Kahnert, (who had 
to work under the handicap of a 
definite lack of equipment and 
facilities), but because it was a 
first year. There will never be 
a season like this again. This 
means there were no standing 
school records or outstanding 
marks to shoot for; this was a 
record year. 

Coach Lufher Schwich and CLC's baslcetball team were 
all smiles at the end of the first season. 

Seven CLC men were active in track and field events.

Rrst CLC Baseball Team Blazes Trails 

By Woody Willc 

As our athletic year has quick- 
ly come to a close, we must once 
again review the trails that have 
been blazed by our baseball team. 
And have they blazed trails! All 
games except one, were played 
on the road and they took us 
as far south as Fullerton to play 
the Orange State "Ringers", and 
to our nearby service rival, the 
Pt. Mugu Naval Air Base. 

We opened up our season with 
a cliff-hanging triumph over Bio- 
la oClIege in La Mirada. Recent- 
ly, we returned to capture the 
rubber game in the best-of-three 
series 2-0. 

We went east twice to play La 
Verne College and were soundly 
whipped both times. We o£fer no 
excuses — they were good hitters 
and, incidentally, they were chos- 
en to represent this area in the 
NAIA Regionals. 

Chapman College, noted more 
for their basketball prowess, 
handled the Lutes rather handily 
in their first encounter, 14-2, lim- 
iting the CLC batsmen to five 
scratch hits. In the next conflict 
we only surrendered four runs to 
CC. losing a heartbreaker by the 
county of 4-2. 

Journeying to "Mugu", we 
bopped ihe Naval team U-O be- 
hind the splendid six-hit flinging 
of lefty Al Aronson. In that en- 
joyable afternoon everyone hit, 
and no errors were committed. 
The trip home was highlighted 
with a steak dinner at the Siz2- 

Our migratory habits led us to 
Riverside for an encounter with 
Cal Baptist College. Unhappily, 
this was "K" day for our line-up 
with CLC's order going down on 
strikes nineteen times. The Bap- 
tists backed up their pitching 
with timely hitting and came out 
on the good end of a 9-2 count. 

At Rio Hondo, we ran into a 
reject from UCLA's pitching 
staff. Carson pitched like he 
wanted to rejoin the Bruins as 
he set down the Lutes with nine 

'K's and was touched up for only 
six hits. 

It was Carson's day as he 
snuffed out a CLC rally in the 
ninth after he lost his shutout 
by allowing two runs to cross the 
plate in the same frame. Anoth- 
er heartbreaking score: 3-2! 

We retiirned to Mugu, and be- 
fore we knew it they were in pos- 
session of a 5-2 lead at the end 
of five rounds. However, the 
eighth was a different story. With 
the Navy defense collapsing with 
errors and poor throws, the 
Lutes helped things along with 
7 runs on 6 hits and grabbed a 
comfortable lead of 9-5. They add- 
ed the frosting to the cake in the 
ninth with another tally. The fi- 
nal score was 10-6. 

A cold day at Azusa College 
last week cooled Lute bats, but 
Azusa did little damage until the 
fifth when they pished across six 
runs. With this behind him, pitch- 
er Gary Nelson coasted to a 13-6 

If we try to look for our best 
steady performers, the search 
would probably go down to the 
wire with George Engdahl and 
Jim Huchtausen. George with his 
never-ending hustle and presence 
at all practice to keep the infield 
alive and loose. Jim's natural 
ability at short and timely hit- 
ting must cinch him for the job 
next season. 

Jack Knisley and Al Aronson 
also were standouts. "Jackson" 
with great improvement at the 
hot comer and in his relief pitch- 
ing, and Al who turned out to be 
the workhorse of the pitching 
staff after showing all he could 
to fill the bill with great play at 
first base. 

Dean E. D. Farwell recently 
asked one of our prominent stu- 
dents whether he was in the top 
half of his class. "Oh, no, sir," 
responded the student. "I'm one 
of those who make the top half

The less said about "Orange 
State's" basebalU team the bet- 
ter. Down there and at our only 
home game they showed up with 
a club of Fullerton JC men and 
some partt-ime students. They 
should start a club of "Ringer's 
Round-up" so they are enabled 
to have sufficient time to warm- 
up when hailed to play for 01' 
State. One wonders if the ele- 
phants are adaptable to baseball, 
OCSC's students aren't! 

On the night of the Prom, one 
of CLC's male students remarked 
to his date, "That's 'Pink Light- 
ning' lipstick you're wearing, 
isn't it?" Flattered that he should 
notice the color of her lipstick, 
the girl replied, "Why, yes, but 
how did you know?" "Oh," he 
quipped, "I've been struck by it 



Officers Chosen 

On Wednesday, May 9, the new- 
ly organized Lettermen's club 
met and chose their officers for 
the coming semester. Club func- 
tions and organization plans were 
also discussed. 

George Engdahl was chosen to 
lead the club as president. Jim 
Huchtausen was elected vice-pres- 
ident; Jerry Liebersbach, secre- 
tary; Paul Kilbert, treasurer; 
and Jerry Bell, Sgt. at Arms. 
Roger Adams was elected Ath- 
letic Commissioner. Dr. Luther 
Schwich, and Rev. James Kallas 
were chosen as the club's advis- 

The club's first activity will be 
a Letterman's banquet in honor 
of all the lettermen at CLC in 
the past year. It will be held 
Monday, May 28, in the back of 
the cafeteria. There will be a 
speaker and awards will be given 
out. Special guest and dates will 
also attend the dinner. 

The club is in the process of 
passing their constitution and 
then to be recognized by the ASB 
as a college club. Plans are also 
being formulated for selling re- 
freshments at the athletic events 
in the next school year.

At this point about all anyone 
can say is that the long haul is 
finally over. All that is left are 
finals. They aren't really too im- 
portant, for it only means that if 
you fail them you are out for 
good. Nothing serious you know. 

I have enjoyed writing this col- 
umn this year eevn if it was dull 
and boring at times. I mean the 
writing. The hardest feat for a 
sports-writer is to keep up the 
enthusiasm of the student body. 
This year there wasn't too much 
work here, because the student 
body did not need to be pushed 
to back their teams. They were 
always there willing and able to 
give the referees and umpires 
trouble. The spirit has been ter- 
rific this year, considering some 
of the circumstances, and the ath- 
letes appreciate it. 

CLC, I think did well in its first 
year of competition. As Dr. Lu- 
ther Schwich said, "Some of those 
teams who thought they had it 
easy this year are going to get 
stomped next year." He also 
goes on to say that the only rea- 
son we are scheduling some of 
the same basketball teams for 
next year is to show them that 
they aren't good enugh for CLC 

in the future. 

Basketball of course aroused 
the most Interest because the 
team played home games. Let's 
not forget the cross-country, 
track, and baseball squads that 
had to play all their games and 
meets away from home. This 
was very hard, but I think a 
commendable job was done on 
the part of the competitors. 

Don't forget our intramural 
program this year which was 
helped along by Mr. John Kahn- 
ert, PE instructor. Volleyball, 
track, weightlifting and football 
were all carried out very well in 
this, CLC's first year. 

I think the biggest congratula- 
tions should go to Dr. Luther 
Schwich, Mr. Kahnert, and Dr. 
Dahl for the wonderful work they 
have done this year to get the 
athletic program on its feet. Cer- 
tainly with the dedication of these 
men CLC can look forward to 
many wonderful years in the 
field of athletics. As long as men 
seek to compete together in 
sports, California Lutheran Col- 
lege will be at the top of the 
heap, even if it is elephant rac- 

Track Coach and Director of Intramural Sports Activities, 

John Kahnert, congratulates Paul Carlson for winning 

the 1 00 and 220 yard dashes. 

Intramutal Sports Activities 
Exciting, Interesting 

This year many exciting and 
interesting activities have been 
participated in by CLC students. 
The many intramural sports ac- 
tivities have included: football, 
volley ball, baseball, track and 
weightlifting for the men; and 
volley ball, basket ball, fie Id hock- 
ey and baseball for the girts. For 
the first few weeks after the be- 
ginning of school in September 
the fellas experienced the set 
'em up-knock 'em down tactics of 
some of the more experienced 
football enthusiasts. November 
18th brought on the co-recreation- 
al volley ball tournament with 72 
students participating. The van- 
ning team of thi^ee girls and 
three fellas consisted of Louene 
Weber, Sue Thouren, Marcia 
Tambert. Richard Stolee, Bill 
Von Heeder. and Bill Ewing. To 
round out the intramural activi- 
ties of the first semester was the 
"rolicking" basketball competi- 
tion of the girls. Two outstanding 
rebounders of the coeds were 
Carolyn Dybdal and Karolyn 

The second semester has seen 
tiie ^rls competing in field hock- 
ey and baseball. The guys have 
had the opportunity to compete 
in track and weightlifting. Speed- 

ster Paul Carlson and hefty Glenn 
Darby showed their talen in track 
and weight lifting respectively. 
The weight lifting contest saw 
Jim Hollowed lift the meet maxi- 
mum of 685 pounds in a total of 
three lifts. Glen Darby, entered 
in the light weight class, made 
lifts on the par and in some in- 
stances even better than those 
of the heavier men. Glen Darby, 
Jim Hollowed and George Eng- 
dahl finished first in their respec- 
tive classes— lightb middle and 
heavy weight. 

The final conclusion to this 
story of the years sports activi- 
ties wouldn't be complete with- 
out a hearty thanks to Miss Nena 
Amundson and Mr. John Kahnert 
for their hard work in planning 
and officiating in each of these 
intramural activities. Without 
their liard work and concern for 
the students, none of the many 
exciting times had by the stu- 
dents could have taken place. 

When a student of CLC received 
a grade card with four F's and 
one D, the Dean asked him for 
an explanation, if any, for FOUR 
failing grades. "I guess I just 
spent too much time on the other 
subject," was the blithe reply.
